SLAM validation using iGPS

July 3rd, 2020 | by

For the validation of localization and mapping algorithms (SLAM) for mobile robots, we use at IGMR the indoor Global Positioning System from Nikon.
SLAM is a classical problem in mobile robotics and still a current and challenging research topic. The current developments are focused in improving SLAM algorithms with respect to a high accuracy, generality, and robustness. For this reason, we validate our SLAM algorithms for mobile robotics with the Nikon iGPS which is used to generate a ground truth with a frequency of 40 Hz and an accuracy of 0.2 mm. In this way, critical inaccuracies and loop closure methods can be much better quantified and analyzed.
