23. Evaluation of Maps using Fixed Shapes: The Fiducial Map Metric
Topic: Robotics
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Soren Schwertfeger, Adam S Jacoff, Christopher Scrapper, Johannes Pellenz, Alexander Kleiner
Abstract: Mapping is an important task for mobile robots. Assessing the quality of those maps is an open topic. A new approach on map evaluation is presented here. It makes use of artificial objects placed in the environment named "Fiducials". Using the known ...
