I'm actually a beginner at robotics but am eager to learn. I'm working on a robotics project which shall require the use of SLAM(What I have understood is that a signature of the environment is made by LIDAR and that scan is compared to scans in the future to figure out where the robot is). My questions are:
1> I havent really been able to understand SLAM very well so where can i study it? Papers and stuff are super complicated to start with.
2> What if NLOS navigation probes are used to triangulate the position? Would an obstacle avoidance algorithm be computationally lighter?(I dont need the map of the environment actually)
3> if i use the ICP SLAM available here on MRPT how exactly do i tell the robots actuators something in effect telling it to "Move here" or "Move away" or "Go around" or whatever.
Looking forward to a response!
