As part of the Army Collaborative Technology Alliance (CTA) on micro autonomous systems technology (MAST) Georgia Tech has an effort to study simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) across a team of vehicles. Last fall a joint experiment engaging JPL, UPENN and GT setup an experiment to study exploration strategies, mapping and multiple-feature integration. The initial experimental results were reported at the recent SPIE conference in Orlando, and is summarized in a recent GTRI press article.
