Introduction to autonomous mobile robots. MIT press. Part 1: describe the key tasks of robot perception.

 Discuss what the current state-of-the-art approaches achieved at the time and what the key issues are for the future development of the systems? Part

  research and discuss the current development of mapping algorithms and how they are applied in the real world. What are the most popular sensors for mapping algorithms?

Why they are so popular? 

How can a fusion of sensing data help mapping? 

What are the main current technical challenges in​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​ mapping algorithms?

 How might these challenges be tackled?
