24.03.2022 – Innovative Research Discussion


Meeting notes on the 23rd of March 2022

Location: Chair of CPS

Date & Time: 23rd March. 2022, 12 pm to 1.00 pm

Participants: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert, Linus Nwankwo, M.Sc.



  1. Discussion of the research progress
  2. Discussion of related literature for 2D Lidar-based SLAM and path planning for improved autonomous navigation

Topic 1: SLAM + Path Planning Algorithms

  1.  Compare Lidar-based SLAM with RGBD-based
  2. Select the appropriate algorithm to build the SLAM system
  3. Evaluate the performances of the chosen SLAM + path planning algorithm in terms of:
    • computational efficiency
    • collision avoidance in a dynamic environment.

Topic 2: Real-time Implementation

  1.  Compare our two mobile bases: 
  2. Implement the chosen SLAM algorithm to solve the problem of loop closure that we are currently facing.
  3.  Send the robot to a specific goal location within the laboratory

Future Steps

Toward improved autonomous navigation in real-time with any of our mobile bases.
