Mapping in 3D

Some autonomous mobile robots have the capability of building 3D maps of the environment in which they operate. For 3D mapping, AMRs require input from stereo cameras or another 3D sensor. 3D maps can be dense, with all visible surfaces included in the map, or sparse, using only data points that pick up natural features. See also Sparse 3D map and Dense 3D map.
