Towards Multi-Vehicle Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping
This paper presents a novel approach to the multi-vehicle Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) problem that exploits the manner in which observations are fused into the global map of the environment to manage the computational complexity of the algorithm and improve the data association process. Rather than incorporating every observation directly into the global map of the environment, the Constrained Local Submap Filter (CLSF) relies on creating an independent, local submap of the features in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle. This local submap is then periodically fused into the global map of the environment. This representation has been shown to reduce the computational complexity of maintaining the global map estimates as well as improving the data association process. This paper examines the prospect of applying the CLSF algorithm to the multi-vehicle SLAM problem.
