Although many robots are usually industrial manipulators, in the last decades, the non-conventional robots appear and it is known as a service robot. These are autonomous or partially and also are useful for human beings in different situations. For example, in the rescue, surveillance and perform tasks in areas with difficult access. Thus, this work aims to study an autonomous navigation technique in unknown environments. Also, it is implemented and validated on the RoboDeck robotics platform. Artificial Neural Networks, Odometry, Kalman's Filter, Computational Vision, and others are examples of the navigation techniques that can be investigated. (AU)
