If SLAM is a new term to you and you want to know more about it, you are on the right page. SLAM is a new technology that is employed to enable a mobile robot for vehicles to detect the surrounding environment. The idea is to spot its position on the map. Primarily, this technology is associated with robotics, but it can also be employed in a lot of other devices and machines, such as drones, automatic aerial vehicles, automatic forklifts, and robot cleaners just to name a few. Let’s get a deeper insight into this technology.
The Advent of SLAM
In 1995, SLAM was introduced for the first time at the International Symposium on Robotics Research. In 1986, a mathematical definition was presented at the IEEE Robotics and Automation Conference. After the conference, studies were carried out in order to find more about the navigation devices and statistical theories.
