The main goal of this project is to investigate the industrial applicability of the current state-of-the-art in the area of SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) and path planning of ground robots.
In the context of this project, the main shortcomings of existing solutions are identified with respect to achievable mapping accuracy and robustness. Specific comparison metrics include detection of walls (glass, steel, concrete, wood) and dynamic obstacles, robustness against with outside light / office light and different surfaces. New solutions will be developed for the identified shortcomings. A proof-of-concept will be developed based on the proposed new solutions and the results will be demonstrated in an operational environment.
