Robust mapping solutions for autonomous systems

Lidar based maps suffer from dynamic objects in the scene, during data collection. Dynamic objects decrease the quality of maps and affect localization accuracy. In this session, we will look at mapping solutions used by Autonomous robots and cars. And discuss a simple technique that can provide better long term mapping solutions for Autonomous systems.
