Obstacle Detection is the method to find the presence of obstacles, which are in between the path of the robot and the goal location. For obstacle detection many sensors are used. Sensors are the devices which are used for sensing various parameters. In this article different fusion techniques are discussed to acquire the obstacle avoidance behaviors for differential autonomous mobile robot.
