Introduction to Visual SLAM (Springer)
Monday, 18 October 2021

This book offers an introduction to the visual simultaneous localization and mapping (vSLAM) technology, which is a component for many applications in robotics, wearable devices, and autonomous driving vehicles. Xiang Gao and Tao Zhang start from very basic mathematic background knowledge such as 3D rigid body geometry, the pinhole camera projection model, and nonlinear optimization techniques.

The authors then introduce readers to traditional computer vision topics such as feature matching, optical flow, and bundle adjustment. The book employs a light writing style and includes a wealth of executable source code with increasing difficulty to help readers understand and use the practical techniques.
