Google's Cloud Robotics

In their lecture, Jürgen Sturm and Christoph Schütte from Google Germany talk about the Google’s Cloud Robotics project before diving deeper into specific robot perception problems. Christoph Schütte introduces Cartographer, a system that provides real-time simultaneous localization and mapping, also called SLAM, in 2D and 3D across multiple platforms. Jürgen Sturm closes the lecture with semantic mapping and spatial intelligence in artificial intelligence. In a nutshell, spatial intelligence describes the ability to understand and remember spatial relations among objects or space and allows humans to navigate in their environment and to perform jobs. The same applies to robots and their understanding of their environment. Their educational and application-oriented lecture is suitable for beginners.
