Probabilistic Localization of a Soccer Robot

This summer Priit Kallas is defending his master’s thesis, entitled “Probabilistic Localization of a Soccer Robot“, where he describes how he implemented reliable localization on a soccer robot “Telliskivi II”, who got a second place in Robotex 2012 (the name stems from the fact that two core members from the Telliskivi team participated in its creation).

This is a well-written text, accompanied by fantastic open-source software, which makes it compulsory reading for anyone working on an autonomous robot. Download it here and check out the teaser video:
