This paper introduces an iterative technique to segmentation of indoor floor from a single 2-D camera connected to a mobile robot. The segmentation of the floor is an essential function for efficient mobile robot navigation, unlike previous approaches which rely on geometric indications, edges etc. Mobile robot mounted with the 2-D camera can capture floors images over long indoor sequences. Both floor and non-floor regions are all of a similar color when the conditions of illumination vary over a single image. The texture of the floor varies over a single image, and features may be lost as lighting changes. As mobile robot rotates, lot of information may be lost in the presence of small obstacles. Some floor areas are very shining under the artificial light condition. The radiant floor gives the wrong segmentation output. In the proposed approach does not require multiple images. The floor patterns are dynamically selected in the proposed research, and segmentation is performed based on the chosen designs. Camera calibration is not required in the proposed approach for floor segmentation. Also, edge cues and geometric cues are not necessary. The extensive experiment is conducted on a broad set of real indoor corridor floor image set.

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
