The use of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) for underwater tasks is a promising robotic field. These robots can carry visual inspection cameras. Besides serving the activities of inspection and mapping, the captured images can also be used to aid navigation and localization of the robots. Visual odometry is the process of determining the position and(More)
—An important aspect in robotics is mapping environments , it means know free space configuration of the robot and establish landmarks. It enables the robot to calculate its position in the environment. In this context, this paper proposes a method for mapping generic environments (structured or not) based on topological maps (SOM and Growing Cell(More)
