    • Mapping and localisation with sparse range data

      Schmidt, J; Wong, CK; Yeap, WK (AUT University, 2006)
      We present an approach for indoor mapping and localization with a mobile robot using sparse range data, without the need for solving the SLAM problem. The paper consists of two main parts. First, a split and merge based ...
    • Our next generation of robotics researchers? Teaching robotics at primary school level

      Wong, CK; Yeap, WK; Schmidt, J (AUT University, 2009)
      In this paper, we present our experience in designing and teaching of our first robotics course for students at primary school level. The course was carried out over a comparatively short period of time, namely 6 weeks, 2 ...
