An Overview of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping Using Low-Cost Mini Robot Platform
Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) capability is important for robot to obtain map of an unknown environment. Having SLAM algorithm incorporated in a mini robot can enable the robot to carry out many tasks. Mini robots have potential application in vast areas, including domestic, industrial or humanitarian field. A low-cost mini robot with low-cost sensors can be expandable in situations that have high risk of being damaged or lost. This paper presents an overview of research in the SLAM domain implement on low-cost mini robot platform. The paper concludes that the potential of low-cost sensors in SLAM algorithms are still underexplored. The investigation points out that collaborative SLAM using multi robot or integration of machine learning method can be a good direction for the research.
