Recently, considerable attention has been focused on the investigation of the use of wireless sensor networks (WSN) to drive mobile robot for efficient exploration in unknown environments. The process of navigation depends heavily on estimating the position of the features provided by sensor within the entire environment. This paper proposes a novel navigation algorithm based on RF wireless sensor networks to simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) for an indoor autonomous mobile robot. Triangulation localization method is employed to make the robot locates itself and knows its pose. A simple yet efficient two-step particle filter is applied for map building. Simulation and experimental results show that good localization can be achieved using the proposed method.
