Notes and Reading - Lecture #4

Lecture #4 looked at localization.


The notes are available in two formats:

and here is the simulation I showed you of the operation of the particle filter (you'll need the Netlogo system if you want to run it).


The lecture covered material from Chapter 5 of the textbook, Sections 5.1-5.4 and 5.6-5.7. You should read this if you have the textbook (the textbook covers much more than we had time to look at in the lecture).

The classic paper on Monte-Carlo localization is
