We present a navigation algorithm, which integrates
virtual obstacle concept with a potential-field-based
method to maneuver cylindrical mobile robots in
unknown or unstructured environments. This study
focuses on the real-time feature of the navigation
algorithm for fast moving mobile robots. We mainly
consider the potential-field method in conjunction with
