The definitive intern guide to SLAM: place recognition & loop closure

By |2020-04-22T14:48:27+00:00June 29th, 2017|Categories, Learn how to|

SLAM - simultaneous localisation and mapping - is a technique robots use to build a map of their environment, ascertain where they are within the map and assess whether they’ve been to a particular location before. It’s an incredibly important technique within navigation research, so important in fact that we currently have a team focusing [...]

Sharing PAL Robotics’ experience in biped humanoids at KoroiBot final workshop

By |2020-04-23T11:31:04+00:00September 15th, 2016|Categories, Events|

One long shot in robotics is to make biped humanoids walk in a robust and stable way. If we want robots to help us in our daily life, they have to adapt to a world which fits us, to our world. Walking with two legs, keeping balance and immediately reacting to any obstacle is natural [...]
