My research interests concern various aspects of the SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) problem, including long-term mapping and point cloud registration. Moreover, I dealt with the autonomous robot calibration problem.
We proposed an approach for merging three-dimensional maps represented as pose graphs of point clouds.
Our method can effectively deal with typical distortions affecting SLAM generated maps.
We showed the obtained results in this webgl page.
Refer to our work "3D Map Merging on Pose Graphs" for a full description of the algorithm.
We released our framework for autonomous calibration of intrinsic and exstrinsic parameters of mobile platforms. Source code (ROS-based) can be found here. For a complete description of the implemented approach, refer to our ICRA16 paper "Unsupervised Calibration of Wheeled Mobile Platforms".
