Towards Mapping of Cities
— Map learning is a fundamental task in mobile robotics because maps are required for a series of high level applications. In this paper, we address the problem of building maps of large-scale areas like villages or small cities. We present our modified car-like robot which we use to acquire the data about the environment. We introduce our localization system which is based on an information filter and is able to merge the information obtained by different sensors. We furthermore describe out mapping technique that is able to compactly model three-dimensional scenes and allows us efficient and accurate incremental map learning. We additionally apply a global optimization techniques in order to accurately close loops in the environment. Our approach has been implemented and deeply tested on a real car equipped with a series of sensors. Experiments described in this paper illustrate the accuracy and efficiency of the presented techniques. I. I Buildi...
