BreezySLAM: A Simple, efficient, cross-platform Python package for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (thesis)
AbstractBreezySLAM is a simple, efficient, multiplatform, open--‐source Python library for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping. By using Python C extensions to wrap existing implementations of existing SLAM algorithms, BreezySLAM provides a Python API for SLAM that runs nearly as fast as the original C code. By making a SLAM API available in Python, students and other interested users will be able to get their hands on SLAM very quickly and efficiently. BreezySLAM has been tested with a number of robots in V--‐REP Simulator, as well as on a Neato XV--‐11, with promising results.
