Generating maps belongs to the fundamental tasks of mobile robots. In the past, many approaches have used occupancy grid maps to represent the environment during mapping and exploration. Occupancy grids, however, are based on the assumption that each cell is either occupied or free. In this paper we introduce coverage maps as an alternative way of… (More)
