simultaneous location and mapping

Technology that uses data from an array of sensors, one of which is commonly lidar, to solve the problem of creating a map of an unknown environment while simultaneously maintaining a location within that map. Simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) algorithms enable autonomous mobile robots to navigate environments without the aid of reflectors or markers.
