Title: ROBOT FOLLOWING METHOD
Abstract:
A robot following method, comprising: recognizing a tracked object; monitoring the intensity of a Bluetooth signal received by two Bluetooth receiving modules (132) which are arranged on the robot at an interval of L meters; according to the monitored intensity of the Bluetooth signal, respectively calculating distances L1 and L2 between the two Bluetooth receiving modules (132) and a Bluetooth transmitting module (131); acquiring foremost two groups of L1 and L2, and according to L, L1 and L2, calculating the speed and direction of the tracked object; according to the calculated speed and direction of the tracked object, adjusting the speed and direction of the robot; receiving a detection range of a sensor in each group and according to a pre-set rule, acquiring a minimum value of each group to be used as a determined detection range of this group; according to the latest determined detection range, determining the distance and direction of an obstacle; and according to the speed of the robot and changes in time and distance of the detection range sent by a sensor module twice, determining a position of an obstacle and bypassing the obstacle. The robot following method has the advantages of being simple in use, low in cost and easy to popularize in a wide range.
