Title

Some Research on SLAM Problems

Abstract

The Centre for Autonomous Systems (CAS) at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) consists of 90 researchers in Robotics. In this talk, I will first introduce some of the research projects of UTS:CAS. Then I will present some of the research on mobile robot simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem conducted at UTS:CAS. In particular, this talk will cover some SLAM algorithms developed at UTS:CAS and some insights into the fundamental nonlinear structure of the SLAM problems.
