Mobile Robot Algorithm Design
These Robotics System Toolbox™ algorithms focus on mobile robotics or ground vehicle applications. These algorithms help you with the entire mobile robotics workflow from mapping to planning and control. You can create maps of environments using occupancy grids, develop path planning algorithms for robots in a given environment, and tune controllers to follow a set of waypoints. Perform state estimation based on lidar sensor data from your robot.

To use the
stateEstimatorPF particle filter, you must specify parameters such as the number of particles, the initial particle location, and the state estimation method.
A particle filter is a recursive, Bayesian state estimator that uses discrete particles to approximate the posterior distribution of the estimated state.
Particle filter is a sampling-based recursive Bayesian estimation algorithm, which is implemented in the
