MAXST's newest 'Sensor Fusion SLAM' solution, which integrates the use of camera with IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor is available via iOS now. MAXST Sensor Fusion SLAM combines IMU sensor, which is already equipped on cameras in most smartphones, to provide as effective yet powerful SLAM. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, widely known as SLAM is the core technology for autonomous driving. Most often, SLAM is a technology that combines the Lidar sensor with a came
Figure 1. General SLAM System Overview Camera, Lida, Depth Camera, IMU and GPS are input data of SLAM. Camera is being used very frequently among the public. The price of camera is cheap and camera is the basis of SLAM recently. Lidar possesses very high degree of precision. However, the price of Lidar is very expensive. So, it is mainly used in SLAM, which requires high reliability. Depth camera is installed on Apple’s iPad Pro, Google’s Tango, and several Android devices fr
In AR world, SLAM stands for Simultaneous Localization And Mapping. Figure 1. Localization Figure 2. Mapping Figure 1 and 2 are images showing Localization and Mapping. The video below is an example showing simultaneous map creation on a real smartphone. SLAM shows the operation of SLAM, which estimates the location of the device in an unknown environment and creates a map of the unknown environment at the same time, as shown in the video below.

The city-scale augmented reality platform MAXST has announced their newest ‘Sensor Fusion SLAM’ solution, which integrates the use of a camera with IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor. This solution will be unveiled to the public on the 27th. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, widely known as SLAM is the core technology for autonomous driving. Most often, SLAM is a technology that combines the Lidar sensor with a camera and generates 3D maps of a real world. However, t
Previously, we introduced SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping), a technology to map an unfamiliar space and to identify my location.
In SLAM, various theories, tools, and sensors can be used. Let’s take a look at each feature of them and an application example of Visual SLAM, which is MAXST’s main field. Diversification of SLAM SLAM technology is based on several theories depending on the purpose. Typical theories include autonomous mobile robotics and computer visio
MAXST is going to open its ‘Sensor Fusion SLAM’ solution to the public on 27th. SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) is technology that enables drones, manless robots, or cars to carry out automatic driving by perceiving environment with sensor and creating maps that are as same as real world. MAXST Sensor Fusion SLAM integrates a camera with rapid 3-axis rotation and acceleration data of IMU sensor to create a powerful SLAM technology. It tracks a target expeditiousl
