A continuous, straight-edged line is used for the visual navigation of an autonomous mobile robot in a factor environment. This line, which resides on the floor and contrasts with background, may also be used to determine range information. Two methods are developed for determining the range of an object in the sensor's field of view. The effects of various error conditions in the system geometry on each ranging method are determined. Equations are derived which yield the percent error in calculating ranges given estimates of these error conditions. Numerical examples using typical sensor parameters are given.
