Abstract

This paper presents the analysis and implementation of traveling surface characteristics test equipment using optical mice in connection with the velocity estimation of a mobile robot equipped with optical mice. In the traveling surface characteristics test equipment, a traveling surface sample is made to rotate toward stationary optical mice instead of a mobile robot equipped with optical mice moving over a traveling surface. First, the conceptual design and operational principle of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment is explained. Second, the velocity kinematics of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment is formulated; based on this, the parameter setting of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment is described. Third, the implementation of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment is described in detail, including the mechanical design and construction and the hardware and software development. Fourth, using the prototype of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment, the experimental results of the statistical parameter extraction for different traveling surface samples are given. Finally, some potential usages of the traveling surface characteristics test equipment are discussed.
