11/16/09 1 Markov Kalman Filter Localization Markov localization localization starting from any unknown position recovers from ambiguous situation. However, to update the probability of all positions within the whole state space at any time requires a discrete representation of the space (grid). The required memory and calculation power can thus become very important if a fine grid is used. Kalman filter localization tracks the robot and is inherently very precise and efficient. However, if the uncertainty of the robot becomes to large (e.g. collision with an object) the Kalman filter will fail and the position is definitively lost. Markov Localization (1) Markov localization uses an explicit, discrete representation for the probability of all position in the state space . This is usually done by representing the environment by a grid or a topological graph with a finite number of possible states (positions). During each update, the probability for each state (element) of the entire space is updated.

11/16/09 2 Markov Localization (2): Applying probabilty theory to robot localization P(A): Probability that A is true. e.g. p(r t = l): probability that the robot r is at position l at time t (prior) We wish to compute the probability of each individual robot position given actions and sensor measures. P(A | B): Conditional probability of A given that we know B.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
