In this paper, we describe about a study of dead-reckoning algorithm for mecanum wheel based mobile robot under various types of road surface. Because of mecanum wheel based mobile robot can move omni-direction by utilizing tire-road surface friction. Therefore depending on road surface condition, it is difficult to estimate accurate self-position by applying conventional dead-reckoning method. In order to overcome inaccuracy of conventional dead-reckoning method for mecanum wheel based mobile robot, we propose new dead-reckoning algorithm. Validity of proposed algorithm is confirmed by extensive actual experiment under various types of road surface.
