|Summerschool on "Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping"|
August 5--9, 2002
for Autonomous Systems
Kungl Tekniska Högskolan
SE-100 44 Stockholm
A critical competence for mobile robot systems is the ability to localize 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, C++/C) involving groups of students.
The summerschool is organised around topics according to:
The summerschool will involve the following set of experts:
The summerschool is open to 50 international PhD students. Only registered PhD students will be admitted to the summerschool. It is expected that admitted students have a basic knowledge of linear Kalman Filtering and estimation theory. In addition working knowledge of programming in Matlab and/or C++ is expected. Participation is at a cost of $150, and accommodation will be organised at no extra charge. The participants are required to cover their own travel expenses and local expenses for meals etc.
The summerschool is sponsored by the EU through the European Robotics Research Network -- EURON, the Swedish Foundation for Internationalisation of Research and Education -- STINT and the SSF through its Centre for Autonomous Systems.
