A map building method based on wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is presented in this paper which applies the technology of WSNs to the field of mobile robots. In our scheme, a series of factors blocking the mobile robot are considered carefully and besides, multiple information is employed to develop the practicability of maps. The general used gird map is provided through our method. Extensive simulations show that the presented method has a relative small map building error under tolerance constraints and this method can satisfy requirem sof robot localization and navigation.
