Abstract
The navigation of an autonomous robot vehicle and person localisation in the absence of GPS both rely on using local sensors to build a model of the 3D environment. Accomplishing such capabilities is not straightforward – there are many choices to be made of sensor and processing algorithms. Roke Manor Research has broad experience in this field, gained from building and characterising real-time systems that operate in the real world. This includes developing localization for planetary and indoor rovers, model building of indoor and outdoor environments, and most recently, the building of texture-mapped 3D surface models.
