Autonomous Vision-based Exploration and Map

This video shows the progress of a robot as it explores a real-world environment. It uses a stereo camera (and no other sensors) to detect obstacles and localize itself. It makes its own decisions about where to go, based on its expectation of the value of visiting any particular location. The environment is an indoor planar lab, about 20m on each side.
