Research Project

Machine Learned Occupancy Grids

For autonomous machines to successfully navigate the physical world, they will have to be able to map their environment. At the same time, robots should be transparent: interpretable and understandable by humans. We believe that these goals are one and the same. In this project, we seek to develop new algorithms and methods to create occupancy grids, a basic map indicating whether a space is filled or not, from image and camera position data.
