SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) system with Four RGB-D cameras

SLAM system using four RGB-D cameras (Microsoft Kinect) is developed. 3D environmental structures are captured in real-time while the robot moves. The robot position is detected by a parent robot using a total station (laser range finder). High speed localization technique using RGB-D camera and large-scale 3D point map using NDT (Normal Distribution Transform) is also proposed.
