SLAM Technology

A*SLAM

         Currently, we use the CaliCam® stereo camera as the SLAM sensor. A*SLAM software uses the edge points as the SLAM features. Since the edge points come from the object contours, the SLAM perfromance is robust under the illumination changing conditions.

SSML Solution

         In many real applications, the mapping is only needed at the beginning phase. Once the map is given, the robot will only run under the localization scenarios.

         Astar developed the SSML solution which enables seamless switching from the Stereo SLAM mode to the Monocular Localization mode, makes the costs of both the camera sensor and the computing device low when deploying multiple service robots in an environment and sharing the same map data.
