Bearing-Only SLAM with Indistinguishable Landmarks
Huang, Henry, Maire, Frederic D., & Keeratipranon, Narongdech (2007) Bearing-Only SLAM with Indistinguishable Landmarks. In The 2007 Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation (ACRA 2007), 10-12, Dec, 2007, Brisbane, Australia.
To navigate successfully, a mobile robot must be able to estimate the spatial relationships of the objects of interest in its environment. The main advantage of a bearing-only SLAM system is that it requires only a cheap vision sensor for navigation. In this paper, we present a bearing-only SLAM method for a 2D environment with visually indistinguishable landmarks (Unknown Data Association). When the frame rate of the vision sensor is high, it is easy to track the landmark correspondences. When the frame rate is low, we estimate the landmark positions by computing the most likely hypothesis based on bearing measurements. A bearing-only SLAM system that employs this method does not require any other sensors such as range sensors or wheel encoders. Due to its low cost, this system is ideally suited for domestic robots such as autonomous lawnmowers and vacuum cleaners.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
