Title: SLAM OPERATION APPARATUS AND METHOD
Abstract:
A simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) hardware accelerator apparatus, comprising: a storage portion for use in storing input data; temporary operation result data; final operation result data; instruction sets and/or algorithm parameter data required for an operation process; an operation portion which is connected to the storage portion, and which is used for completing a calculation of a SLAM-related algorithm and an application; and a control portion which is connected to the storage portion and the operation portion, and which used for controlling and coordinating the storage portion and the operation portion. Further provided is a method for completing a SLAM operation, said method controlling data transport, data operation, and running of a program by means of an instruction. Said apparatus and method may effectively accelerate SLAM algorithms according to different needs, and meet different operation needs while offering the advantages of being highly flexible, being highly configurable, performing operations quickly, having low power consumption, and the like.
