Fig. 5 The KASPA sensor. The lower central aperture Is the transmitter, the other three receive. The two side apertures are small so they receive power over a significant angle; the upper one receives power from the central region Altering Aperture Shape 31 The position of the receivers affect the amount of power they receive. Even given the relatively wide radiation pattern of sonar, a lot of power is lost if the transmitter and receiver are not coincident (as they are in the Polaroid sensor).

Many early approaches [DurrantWhyte 94; Harris 92] to online map-building took simple approaches to representing the state and its uncertainty; the locations of the moving robot in the world and features were stored and updated independently, perhaps using multiple Kalman Filters. However, if any type of long-term motion is attempted, these methods prove to be deficient: though they produce good estimates of instantaneous motion, they do not take account of the interdependence of the estimates of different quantities, and maps are seen to drift away from ground truth in a systematic way, as can be seen in the experiments of the authors referenced above.

The leading edge of the echo is fitted to a quadratic curve. The parameters of this curve are used to estimate the time delay of the pulse. In spite of the problems, this type of transducer has widespread application. It is particularly suitable for obstacle avoidance, which requires only approximate spatial resolution. Good results are given for example when the main obstacle is people, which act as good reflectors from all directions. However problems arise from specularity for many objects. More reliable results can be achieved through using a large number of measurements in time or space so invalid data can be filtered out or ignored.
