Monte Carlo localization (MCL) is a success application of particle filter (PF) to mobile robot localization. In this paper, an adaptive approach of MCL to increase the efficiency of filtering by adapting the sample size during the estimation process is described. The adaptive approach adopts an approximation technique of particle merging and splitting (PM&S) according to the spatial similarity of particles. In which, particles are merged by their weight based on the discrete partition of the running space of mobile robot. Using the PM&S technique, a Merge Monte Carlo localization (Merge-MCL) method is detailed. Simulation results illustrate that the approach is efficient.
