Mobile robotic localisation obtained from simple sensor data potentially offers real-time real-world integration. Computationally highly efficient Weightless Neural Networks, when used for location determination, further enhances performance potential. This paper introduces techniques for the identification of rooms or locations in the absence of complex and succinct information. Using simple floor colour and texture, and room geometrics from ranging data, although inherent uncertainties exist, these limited simple fused real-time sensor data can be easily resolved into a room identification criterion using architectures generated by a Genetic Algorithm technique applied to a Weightless Neural Network Architecture.
