Echoes & Edges: Mapping Moves

Things We Built
Pinpoint Precision: Choreographing Our Robot’s Every Move Localization is the linchpin of autonomous navigation, allowing robots to discern their location and navigate complex environments. Our journey in Pi Wars leverages advanced localization techniques to surmount various navigational hurdles. The Localization Landscape Odometry serves as our primary gauge of movement, albeit with a caveat—accumulating errors. It’s a straightforward reflection of motion but requires correction over distance. Landmark Navigation Landmark navigation relies on recognizable features within the environment to determine a robot’s location.
