Large-Scale Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (Cognitive Intelligence and Robotics)
This book is dedicated for engineers and researchers who would like to increase the knowledge in area of mobile mapping systems. Therefore, the flow of the derived information is divided into subproblems corresponding to certain mobile mapping data and related observations’ equations. The proposed methodology is not fulfilling all SLAM aspects evident in the literature, but it is based on the experience within the context of the pragmatic and realistic applications. Thus, it can be supportive information for those who are familiar with SLAM and would like to have broader overview in the subject.
The novelty is a complete and interdisciplinary methodology for large-scale mobile mapping applications. The contribution is a set of programming examples available as supportive complementary material for this book. All observation equations are implemented, and for each, the programming example is provided. The programming examples are simple C++ implementations that can be elaborated by students or engineers; therefore, the experience in coding is not mandatory.
Moreover, since the implementation does not require many additional external programming libraries, it can be easily integrated with any mobile mapping framework. Finally, the purpose of this book is to collect all necessary observation equations and solvers to build computational system capable providing large-scale maps.Homepage
