Abstract The new approach to utilize information from an
omnidirectional image is presented in this paper. We describe
the integration between the image matching and the Monte-
Carlo localization that can be implemented in a large indoor
environment. The robot is able to localize with reasonable
accuracy despite no metric measurements from the image.
Furthermore, the algorithm can recover quickly from
localizing a robot at a wrong place.
