Opis: Autonomous Navigation with Radar - Ebi Jose, Martin Adams
Focusing on autonomous robotic applications, this cutting-edge resource offers a practical treatment of short-range radar processing for reliable object detection at the ground level. This unique book demonstrates probabilistic radar models and detection algorithms specifically for robotic land vehicles. Engineers and researchers may find detailed coverage of Simultaneous Localization and Map Building (SLAM) - an area referred to as the "Holy Grail" of autonomous robotics research.Introduction.; Part I: Detection and Mapping with Radar - Mapping with Radar.
