Driver-less cars is the next big thing in transportation systems using which we can reduce lot of accidents and also we can optimize travelling time. Somehow we perceive the environment and we will able to localize ourself within the perceived environment. The biggest challenge for Driver less Cars or Autonomous Cars is to Map the Environment and the localization of itself within the mapped environment This problem is called Simultaneous Localization and Mapping.
In this meetup we will talk about how these SLAM techniques are useful for robots which are used in different domains, recent development in SLAM Techniques, challenges in SLAM and opensource tools that are available.
