Robotics research is heavily dependent on fast, accurate, reliable and cheap sensors. Sonar sensing can fulfil these requirements in air and underwater environments. Moreover sonar physics provides robotics researchers with a natural selection capability for landmark detection in navigation problems. This paper presents new sonar results that allow high-speed accurate measurement and classification suitable for moving platforms that has been combined with interference rejection to allow multiple sonar systems to co-exist.
