In this paper, we propose a method for a mobile robot to avoid obstacles in its environment using an omni-directional camera. The method makes an environment map consisting of 3D edge points obtained from omni-directional camera images and estimates the locations of planes by analysing these 3D edge points so that the robot can avoid walls as obstacles. The method has the advantage that it can generate a 3D map in environments constructed by textureless planes. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
