In this paper we address the problem of aligning two partially overlapping surfaces represented by points obtained in subsequent 2D scans for mobile robot pose estimation. The measured points representation contains incomplete measurements. We solve this problem by minimizing an alignment error via a genetic algorithm. Moreover, we propose an alignment metric based on a look-up table built during the first scan. Experimental results related to the convergence of the proposed algorithm are reported. We compare our approach with other scan matching algorithms proposed in the literature, and we show that our approach is faster and more accurate than the others.

Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of aligning two partially overlapping surfaces represented by points obtained in subsequent 2D scans for mobile robot pose estimation. The measured points representation contains incomplete measurements. We solve this problem by minimizing an alignment error via a genetic algorithm. Moreover, we propose an alignment metric based on a look-up table built during the first scan. Experimental results related to the convergence of the proposed algorithm are reported. We compare our approach with other scan matching algorithms proposed in the literature, and we show that our approach is faster and more accurate than the others.
