    This paper provides a detailed description of a set of algorithms to efficiently manipulate 3D geometric models to compute physical constraints and range observation models, data that is usually required in real-time mobile ...
  • GIS map based mobile robot navigation in urban environments 

    Mirats Tur, Josep Maria; Zinggerling, Claudio; Corominas Murtra, Andreu (___, 2009-06-30)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mobile robots need information about its spatial environment to solve any task in a robust, reliable and continuous form. This is usually encoded in a so-called map. We propose the use of a standard, human-readable existing ...
