The precise localization of the mobile robot plays a vital role in the autonomous operation of the mobilerobot. The vision based simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is a widely known technique fortracking the movement of the camera in the unknown environment. This paper presents a robot's movement model which is based on the reference trajectory of the robot. The proposed model was compared with the state-of-the-art model used in the successful MonoSLAM system[8] and provided good results.
