This paper summarizes applications of cellular neural networks to autonomous mobile robot navigation tasks, which have been developed at the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research. They include map building, path planning and self-positioning of an indoor robot equipped with a laser range sensor. Efficiency of navigation based on cellular neural networks has been experimentally verified in a variety of natural, partially structured environments.
