Advancements in Drones and Robots Integrated with Localization and Mapping Techniques to Drive the SLAM Technology Market in Europe.

Thu, 25 July 2019 5:26

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology aids in the localization and positioning of a robot or a device in real-time using mathematical and statistical algorithms with different sensors. Major tech companies are focusing on SLAM technology to offer an enhanced AR/VR experience with peripherals such as HTC Vive, Playstation, and others equipped to provide an immersive VR experience. For instance, Google’s AR platform, Tango, uses advanced SLAM to interact with the surroundings.

Advancements in AR/VR Technology to Drive the SLAM Technology Market

SLAM technology is vital for an array of emerging devices such as AR/VR technology. It enables highly accurate 3D mapping and flexibility of a device surrounding and subsequently, offers an improved AR/VR experience as compared to marker-based solutions, which can map only the floor and not the complete surroundings.

Solid-State LiDAR to Hold a Larger Market Share than Traditional LiDAR Systems

Solid-state LiDAR offers a cost-effective solution when compared with mechanical LiDAR systems. Thus, the technology is expected to drive a significant share of the demand during the forecast period. LiDAR systems are highly expensive, sensitive to movements, and difficult to manufacture, but are highly beneficial in developing 3D maps of the environment. Solid-state LiDAR is a system built entirely on a silicon chip, making it more resilient to vibrations, which makes production cheaper.
