Conclusions and Outlook
2D laser range finders are a de facto standard in robotics and metrical planar 2D mapping of well-defined indoor environments is considered solved. However, mapping unstructured environments remains challenging. Capturing environments in 3D enables robots to cope with these unstructured environments. A representation of the robot’s pose with 6 DoF further enables the mapping vehicle to drive on non-flat ground.
