Title Multirobot Simultaneous Localization and Mapping Using Manifold Representations.
Publication Date Jul 2006
Media Count 11p
Personal Author A. Howard G. S. Sukhatme M. J. Mataric
Abstract This paper describes a novel representation for two-dimensional maps, and shows how this representation may be applied to the problem of multi-robot simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). We are inspired by the notion of a manifold, which takes map ...
