Abstract

Cheap digital cameras are readily available. They can be mounted on robots and used to build maps of the surrounding environment. However, these cameras suffer from several drawbacks such as a narrow field of view, low resolution and limited range due to perspective. These limitations can cause traditional approaches to Simultaneous Localization and Mapping to fail due to insufficient information content in the visual sensor data. This paper discusses these issues and presents a solution for indoor environments.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
