Sevensense Stories: the Hilti SLAM Challenge

With the Hilti SLAM Challenge, Hilti wants to push the frontiers of current navigation technologies. They challenge the state-of-the-art mapping and localization algorithms and advance them to a state where they can be deployed in real environments. We at Sevensense, believe in this goal and supported them with our Alphasense Core Technology to use for the Challenge Dataset. In this exclusive Interview with Michael Helmberger, we will tell you all the details about this project:

Why reliable positioning in- & outdoors requires cameras

Self-localization is essential for robots to safely navigate in changing environments and achieve full autonomy. By employing cameras for this task together with smart algorithms for building and maintaining maps, autonomy can be provided at a fraction of the costs - be it for the sensor gear itself, as well as operating costs over the robot’s lifetime.
