Abstract (Summary of the Work)

The development of robots in modern times has been limited to safe and supervised areas. As technology has advanced, new goals have been set for robot behaviour. Previous investigations and models on Streetcrossing Robots have demonstrated that robots need to be able to track multiple vehicles before they decide to cross a street. This behaviour has been accomplished through the preparation of an algorithm after calculating and analyzing diverse obstacles that could put the robot in danger.In this initial work we focused on proving this algorithm in one-way street with no more that one lane in this direction, for it is more dangerous and complicated for the robot to attempt to cross a street with multiple lanes.This paper describes progress toward a street-crossing system for an outdoor mobile robot. The system can detect and track vehicles and calculate the time when it is safe to cross the street.
