MATRIX-Localization for autonomous model cars
In this thesis I implemented MATRIX, a force field pattern matching algorithm for improving a robots´odometry. I first implemented this algorithm in a simulator and later adapted it for autonomous model cars. I experimented with omnidirectional cameras first, but soon adapted the algorithm to be used with a forward-facing camera instead. Experiments showed that MATRIX can be highly effective in the correct circumstances, or rather unhelpful if those conditions are not met.
