Abstract: Localization and navigation is a crucial task of autonomous robots. This paper introduces LadyBug a novel bug algorithm. Using the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) of an electromagnetic signal, the algorithm is able to accurately calculate the position of the beacon emitting the aforementioned signal. Various experiments were performed with a simulated robot equipped only with local sensors. The proposed algorithm was compared with similar approaches with very promising results.
