Laser Range Finders

Accurate localization of AMIGOs own position with respect to the objects surrounding it is very important. For this purpose two Hokuyo laser range finders (LRF) are build in. One of them is placed on the base platform, the other one in the upper body. These LRFs provide an accurate two dimensional image of the surroundings. Of course we prefer three dimensional information, therefore the LRFs are mounted on a tilting platform.
