Abstract: This paper shows the results of a sensing system for an autonomous mobile robot. The sensing system is based on the paraconsistent neural network. The type of artificial neural network used in this work is based on the paraconsistent evidential logic (Eτ). The objective of the sensing system is to inform the other robot components the obstacle position. The reached results have been satisfactory.

Keywords: paraconsistent ANNs; artificial neural networks; paraconsistent logic; autonomous robots; mobile robots; sensing systems; robot sensors; obstacle localisation; paraconsistent evidential logic.
