    • Estimating the Heading of a Husky Mobile Robot with a LiDAR Compass based on Direction Maps 

      Gallant, Marc J.; Marshall, Joshua A.; Lynch, Brian K. (2016-02-05)
      Without an absolute position sensor (e.g., GPS), an accurate heading estimate is necessary for proper localization of an autonomous unmanned vehicle or robot. This paper introduces direction maps (DMs), which represent the ...
    • Two Dimensional Axis Mapping using LIDAR 

      Gallant, Marc J.; Marshall, Joshua A. (2016-02-04)
      Abstract—This paper introduces two-dimensional axis mapping, which estimates axis maps (AMs) based on LiDAR measurements. An AM describes the dominant orientations of surfaces in an environment, and is void of positional ...
