Survey Lecture: Gerhard Lakemeyer: Uncertainty in Robotics

Thursday, June 24, 2021, 4:30pm

Speaker: Gerhard Lakemeyer



One of the fundamental problems in mobile robotics is navigation. In particular, robots need to have a map of their environment and be able to localize themselves within a map so that they can then safely move from one location to another. The main challenge here is dealing with uncertainty, which is inherent in both sensors and actuators of a robot. In this lecture, I will demonstrate how the so-called Bayes filter lies at the heart of many approaches integrating data from sensors and actuators to arrive at a coherent view of of what the world is like.


The talks of the UnRAVeL survey lecture 2021 will be given via Zoom every Thursday from 16:30 to 18:00:
