Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Robust and accurate self-localization is required for autonomous mobile robots to complete their tasks in various fields. While rotary encoders are commonly used for localization, in slippery environments such as farm- land, it could lead to poor results. This paper presents a localization method without any external equipment and markers, but only with an inexpensive Web-cam on the robot. By using a single downward-looking camera, our localization method achieves both an easy installation and robustness against the environmental changes.
