The power of SLAM

SLAM is a process whereby a robot or machine – in the form of an unmanned aerial or ground vehicle (UAV/UGV) – builds a map of its environment while simultaneously computing its own location within that map. SLAM is highly effective in mapping out unknown environments and is a valuable data tool for engineers in BVLOS path planning and obstacle avoidance.
