I am an interactive entertainment application development career pursuer. I finished my undergraduate study of Electrical Engineering at University of Technology Sydney. My personal interests are Real-time Rendering Computer Graphics, Autonomous Robotics and Renewable Energy Systems.
The primary difference of active SLAM or SPLAM (simultaneously planning, localization and mapping) and normal SLAM is to gain information of unknown surrounding environment autonomously. This involves additional path planning (how the robot goes to there) and control (where it should go to collect more information) mechanism.
In this project, its primary goal is to control the Fetch robot moving from one side to another in dynamic environment such as a corridor with collision avoidance in mind (for example, an emergency stop action).
