SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping)

SLAM is an algorithm enabling a mobile robot or a robotic vehicle to build a map of its environment and keep track of its location on the map at the same time. Without SLAM, robots can’t be considered autonomous. SLAM can be based on various sensor inputs, including 2D LiDAR and stereo cameras. See AMRLiDAR and Stereoscopic cameras for more detail.
