“Introduction to Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM),” a Presentation from Skydio

Gareth Cross, Technical Lead for State Estimation at Skydio, presents the “Introduction to Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM)” tutorial at the September 2020 Embedded Vision Summit.

This talk provides an introduction to the fundamentals of simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). Cross provides foundational knowledge; viewers are not expected to have any prerequisite experience in the field. The talk consists of an introduction to the concept of SLAM, as well as practical design considerations in formulating SLAM problems. Visual inertial odometry is introduced as a motivating example of SLAM, and Cross reviews how the problem is structured and solved.
