  • Patent number: 8588471
    Abstract: A mapping method is provided. The environment is scanned to obtain depth information of environmental obstacles. The image of the environment is captured to generate an image plane. The depth information of environmental obstacles is projected onto the image plane, so as to obtain projection positions. At least one feature vector is calculated from a predetermined range around each projection position. The environmental obstacle depth information and the environmental feature vector are merged to generate a sub-map at a certain time point. Sub-maps at all time points are combined to generate a map.

    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for estimating 3D attitude are disclosed. The method comprises following steps. A set of current angular velocity, a set of current magnetic flux and a set of acceleration of a carrier are sensed. A set of estimated attitude angles are estimated according to the set of current angular velocities, a set of history attitude angles and a motion model. A disturbance parameter is calculated according the set of current magnetic flux and a set of history magnetic flux. It is determined whether the disturbance parameter is more than a disturbance threshold or not. If yes, the set of estimated attitude angles are updated according to the set of current accelerations not the set of current magnetic flux. If not, the set of estimated attitude angles are updated according to the set of current accelerations and the set of current magnetic flux.
