In this paper engineers present a generalized framework for feature-based concurrent mapping and localization (CML) that enables mapping of partially observable features from multiple uncertain vantage points. This enables CML to be performed in situations where individual measurements provide weak geometric constraints, such as with wide-beam sonar sensors.
