Abstract:

In this paper we describe a relative approach to simultaneous localization and mapping, based on the insight that a continuous relative representation can make the problem tractable at large scales. First, it is well known that bundle adjustment is the optimal non-linear least-squares formulation for this problem, in that its maximum-likelihood form matches the definition of the Cramerĝ€"Rao lower bound. Unfortunately, computing the maximum-likelihood solution is often prohibitively expensive...
