How Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence Boost Mapping

Reflecting the migration of people from rural areas to cities, the need to monitor and maintain urban spaces and corridors – both outdoors and in – is expanding. Automation of (3D) mapping of such spaces from overlapping digital images and Lidar point clouds has heavily benefited from fundamental research in the realms of computer vision and artificial intelligence. Recently, robotics has been added to this series as a powerful engine for driving further new developments in automatic mapping. In robotics, one is faced with the problem of determining the path of a robot through a room, shopping mall or other... (read more)
