Visual SLAM（Simultaneous Localization and Mapping） is a technology to generate a 3D environment map while simultaneously locating its own position based on the image captured from camera. This technology enables robots to drive autonomously without GPS signal. The video above shows the map generation and autonomous driving using Visual SLAM technology.
Combining above technology developed by Qoncept, Inc. and Morpho’s imaging technology, we are exploring application in various fields for new business opportunities.
Examples of technology application:
・Automatic Guided Vehicle
