Some Research on SLAM Problems
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.
Prof. Shoudong Huang received the Bachelor and Master degrees in Mathematics, Ph.D in Automatic Control from Northeastern University, P.R. China in 1987, 1990, and 1998, respectively. He worked at the University of Hong Kong for 1.5 years and The Australian National University for 2 years as a Research Fellow. He joined University of Technology Sydney in 2004 and is now an Associate Professor. His research interests include mobile robot simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), path planning, exploration and control. He is currently an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Robotics.
