Overview

RatSLAM is a bio-inspired simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) system.

Based on continous attractor network dynamics, RatSLAM is capable of mapping by closing loops to correct odometry error.

This project will develop a polished, open source codebase for the RatSLAM system which will enhance its use around the world.

Research activities

Research activities will include:

  • coding/programming
  • GUIs and interface design
  • algorithms
  • data, image and sensor processing
  • mapping
  • localisation
  • SLAM

Outcomes

We expect to develop a modern, polished open-source software package for RatSLAM.

Skills and experience

You should have skills and experience in all the research activities that are listed for this project.
