SCAN MATCHING WITHOUT ODOMETRY INFORMATION

Francesco Amigoni, Simone Gasparini, Maria Gini

Abstract

We present an algorithm for merging two partial maps obtained with a laser range scanner into a single map. The most unique original aspect of our algorithm is that it does not require any information on the position where the scans were collected but uses only geometrical features of the scans.
