SLAM, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping
This course covers the general area of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). Initially the problems of localization, mapping, and SLAM are introduced from a methodological point of view. Different methods for representation of uncertainty will be introduced including their ability to handle single and multi-mode uncertainty representations. A number of example applications are discussed.
