Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology to combine the depth information obtained from LIDAR and RGB-D sensors in order to generate enhanced 2D navigation maps which will be used by an Assistant Personal Robot. The objective of this procedure is to locate the mobile robot and to avoid collisions while performing movements in any direction.
