ro-localization(1) Monte-Carlo localization for beacon range-only measurements


ro-localization config_file.ini


ro-localization is a command-line application which processes a rawlog and tracks a mobile robot pose from the sequence of odometry and observations. It can also perform global localization.

This program is a specialization of pf-localization, with an extended model to cope with unknown, dynamic biases in the beacon ranges. It also shows a real-time visualization in 3D of the particles, the beacons, and the measurements.

ro-localization is part of the Mobile Robot Programming Toolkit (MRPT), and was originally written by the MAPIR laboratory (University of Malaga).
