3DLS for Robot Platforms
3DLS can be integrated into any robotic platform that is capable to carry the payload and provide the necessary power supply and that has an onboard computer able to run the 3DLS software. 3DLS has been integrated on the Volksbot®
) and KURT2 platforms.
3DLS Applications in Robotics
including, for example, mapmaking, map-based autonomous navigation and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). If combined with 3DLS, robots like VolksBot® or KURT2 can produce series of overlapping scans. Based on a starting position estimate provided by odometry, successive scans can be recognized so that the robot can autonomously correct its own position estimate.
