simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)

For the development of autonomous vehicles, the GPS system plays a crucial role because it supports location and vehicle movement or location tracking

. Since the accuracy of

GPS is limited to afew meters, and satellite reception is affected by mountains or skyscrapers, autonomous driving technology cannot rely solely on the GPS system, but must also use methods that work in situations where no GPS signal

is available. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is one such technique that calculates the location of the motor vehicle in unknown environments, accurate to a few centimeters without a satellite connection.

The SLAM method uses tracking in the six degrees of freedom right/left, up/down and forward/backward to determine the position.
