PhD Seamless indoor-outdoor localization and mappingPosted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2019-Dec-20
You will work as a part of the mobile mapping team at the EOS department. Indoor mobile mapping includes development of simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithmics and the physical scanning systems. The outdoor mobile mapping research is technically based on satellite positioning (GNSS). Your task is to develop the technologies that allow for a seamless indoor-outdoor localization and mapping. Technically, this means the integration of SLAM and GNSS frameworks. Your work focuses on the algorithmic side, so a profound knowledge on c++ programming and linux-based platforms is required. The platforms are mainly human carried but may include others, e.g. micro aerial vehicles, depending also on the candidate. The position is fully funded (4 years).
