|Summerschool on "Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping"|
|Date||5-9 August 2002|
|Follow-up||The 2004 SLAM summer school was organised in Toulouse|
A critical competence for mobile robot systems is the ability to localisize itself with respect to the environment. In many real-world applications it is impossible to provide a map of the environment a-priori. Consequently there is a need to equip the robot with facilities for Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) also referred to as Concurrent Mapping and Localisation (CML).
Recently there has been significant progress in methods for SLAM/CML. This summerschool will provide a comprehensive coverage of the key topics and state of the art in SLAM/CML. The summerschool will be a combination of lectures by well known experts in the field and computer exercises (MATLAB) involving groups of students.
A list of lecture notes, associated papers, overhead copies and datasets was made available partly in hardcopy and partly on a CD-ROM that each student received when registring (on-site).
The summerschool is sponsored by the EU robotics research network - EURON, The Swedish Foundation for Internationalisation of Research and Education - STINT and the SSF Centre for Autonomous Systems.
