Abstract

Airborne chemical sensing with mobile robots has been an active research areasince the beginning of the 1990s. This article presents a review of research work in this field,including gas distribution mapping, trail guidance, and the different subtasks of gas sourcelocalisation. Due to the difficulty of modelling gas distribution in a real world environmentwith currently available simulation techniques, we focus largely on experimental work and donot consider publications that are purely based on simulations.
Keywords: mobile robot olfaction; gas distribution mapping; trail guidance; gas source localisation; gas source tracing; gas source declaration. mobile robot olfaction; gas distribution mapping; trail guidance; gas source localisation; gas source tracing; gas source declaration.
