The theory of nonlinear observability is an important tool available for the assessment of highly nonlinear estimation problems such as Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). It is shown that all the estimated landmarks must be observed and at least two a priori known landmarks be observed for the nonlinear observability of single vehicle SLAM when estimating any number of unknown landmark locations. The relationship between the information form of SLAM and the nonlinear observability is… CONTINUE READING
