Presentation from Kudan on Commercial Grade SLAM Frameworks for Indoor and Outdoor Applications
John Williams, CTO and co-founder of Kudan, delivered a speech on commercial Grade SLAM technologies for all the future devices.
SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) is an essential technology for any device that requires an understanding of its location and orientation in the physical world. Kudan is the only publicly listed SLAM algorithms vendor in the world licensing commercial grade SLAM frameworks.
In this talk, we briefly introduce SLAM and explain why it is superior to alternative approaches. We explore the different types of sensors (including cameras, IMUs, LiDAR, GPS, etc.) that can be used for SLAM, and how they can be combined for maximum benefit. We explain the advantages of accelerating the execution of SLAM algorithms, and approaches for doing so on various types of embedded and cloud processors. Finally, we describe Kudan’s licensable SLAM technology and customization services, and illustrate the practical use of this technology in a variety of real-world products and environments, including cars, robots, drones and AR/VR devices.
