Review: "Parallel Tracking and Mapping for Small AR Workspaces"

The paper describes the methods and techniques used in the PTAM project. Usually AR systems only work probably when the running system has a certain knowledge of the surrounding area. This knowledge could pre-acquired information of an object or a know marker (a marker could for example a monochrome pattern that is put, like a […]

SLAM - Simultaneous Localization And Mapping

SLAM comes from the robotics area and describes the techniques to create a map from an unknown environment. With the knowledge gathered by generating a map it is possible to determine a location and also to navigate within a certain environment. SLAM by itself is not necessarily a specific algorithm but rather an approach on […]
