Throughout my exposure to robotics, I have been working on Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) applications. My experience on Highway Traffic Estimation, a Kalman filter approach from bachelor drove me to implement selected SLAM systems and navigation methods on a modified AMR. Along this study, I surveyed various SLAM systems on typical indoor environments. My findings showed how non-flat surfaces, glasses, and dynamic areas could seriously fail the performance of AMRs.
