SLAM in a nutshell

SLAM stands for ‘Simultaneous Localization and Mapping’, it means that while we move around, we track our location while also saving all landmarks we see in a map. You use SLAM when you need to create a map of a new environment in which a mobile robot (or any vehicle) must navigate. It’s what humans do naturally when they enter a new room or environment.

Robot navigation means the robot's ability to determine its own position and then to plan a path towards some goal location.

Step 1: Mapping

  • Similar to how a cartographer draws a world map: we store any recognizable landmark in a file, recording both its shape, location or even color.
  • The resulting map can be overlayed with an existing AutoCAD drawing in order to show locations to a human operator

Step 2: Positioning

  • Positioning refers to the process of determining the robot's location and orientation in a given map.
  • This is typically achieved through comparing sensor readings with the landmarks or coordinates in the map

Step 3: Navigation

  • Navigation is done by setting a new destination and creating a plan to drive there. This is called global planning.
  • The global plan can be a Teach-Repeat or dynamic trajectory
  • Local planning deals with obstacle avoidance

We integrate Positioning and Navigation stacks into mobile robots

  • LiDAR based Positioning
  • GNSS based Positioning
  • Sensor Fusion (IMU/Odometry)


  • Global Path Planning
  • Local Path Planning
  • Waypoint based navigation
  • Teach-Repeat navigation
