A novel approach for landmark recognition based on the perception, reasoning, action, and expectation (PREACTE) paradigm is presented for the navigation of autonomous mobile robots. PREACTE uses expectations to predict the appearance and disappearance of objects, thereby reducing computational complexity and locational uncertainty. It uses an innovative concept called dynamic model matching (DMM), which is based on the automatic generation of landmark description at different ranges and aspect angles and uses explicit knowledge about maps and landmarks. Map information is used to generate an expected site model (ESM) for search delimitation, given the location and velocity of the mobile robot. The landmark recognition vision system generates 2-D and 3-D scene models from the observed scene. The ESM hypotheses are verified by matching them to the image model. Experimental results that verify the performance of the PREACTE and DMM algorithms for real imagery are also presented
