Simultaneous localization and detailed mapping | University of Sheffield

curated by | June 29, 2014

“Flying robots that can show true autonomy – and even a bit of politeness – in working together and venturing into hostile environments are being developed by engineers at the University of Sheffield.”


At the University of Sheffield, robots are building maps of and navigating within their environments, starting from a blank slate, except that they may have prior knowledge about the nature of particular objects, but not their locations.  The result is more detailed than a mere map of obstacles to be avoided.
