The Extension of Lu and Milios SLAM to 6 DOF
With our robot Kurt3D we drove a six DOF loop over and under the bridge. During the run, the robot took several 3D laser scans. These scans have been matched with ICP (bottom left) and with an extended version of the algorithm of Lu and Milios (bottom right).
