Abstract

This research proposes a novel approach to outdoor localization based on map matching. The main map for localization is an elevation map which is a grid map with elevation information on each cell. This research presents an elevation moment of inertia (EMOI) which represents the distribution of elevation around a robot in the elevation map. A robot continues to build a local elevation map using a laser sensor and calculates its EMOI. This EMOI is then compared with the EMOIs for all cells of the given reference elevation map to find a robot pose with respect to the reference map. The experimental results of particle filter-based localization show that the proposed EMOI-based approach can be successfully used for outdoor localization with an elevation map.
