  16-311 Lab 6: Localization

Lab 6: Localization


Challenge Statement

Develop a system that can determine its location along a circular path using a probabalistic method.

Lab Goals

  1. Create a system that can take in information from the environment to inform itself about its position.
  2. Develop a probabalistic method of determining the most likely position of the robot when an exact position cannot be determined.

Background

Principles

You will need to understand the probabilistic method for this lab before you implement it. This method is designed as a way to localize with imperfect data. You can find more information about it in the lecture slides.
