I don’t pretend to understand it completely but this is cool.
During his sabbatical at Willow Garage, Stéphane Magnenat from the Autonomous Systems Lab, ETH Zurich integrated a new Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) solution. SLAM allows a robot to build a map of its environment, and to localize itself in this map. This system is based on a modular ICP algorithm, a collaboration with François Pomerleau and Francis Colas at the Autonomous Systems Lab, ETH Zurich.
