  Abstract/
Summary
In this paper, we present a low computational algorithm that implements obstacle avoidance behaviour for wheeled mobile robots. The algorithm exploits one ultrasonic sensor and a set of proximity switches to reach autonomous navigation that may be applied in mobile robotics exploring tasks. The algorithm has been applied on an experimental prototype that uses low cost low computational components and in a simulation environment. Series of experiments proved the efficiency of the algorithm. Future work targets enhancement of the method to path / target tracking tasks.
