Dense 3D Grid Maps (500 MIPS)
A million ranges from 100 stereoscopic views
merged in a 3D evidence grid produced a very high quality
map with potential for very reliable navigation, in
near real time on a robot-portable microcomputer.
The stereo sensor model was trained
to optimize the similarity of grid virtual views to the
corresponding camera images of the real scene.
3D grid map programs were developed
from 1992 to 2002.
