Localization, LRF, Feature Based Mapping, Odometry, SLAM, Split and Merge.
Simultaneous Localization and Mapping is a method used to find the location of a mobile robot while at the same time build a constructive map of its surrounding environment. This paper gives a brief description about a simple integrative SLAM technique using a Laser Range Finder (LRF) and Odometry data, primarily for indoor environments. In this project, a solution for the SLAM problem was implemented on a differential drive mobile robot equipped with a SICK laser scanner.
