A new stereo vision/grid mapping result:

Although this looks 2D its actually a colour 3D occupancy grid map shown from above as a robot moves down a corridor. As the robot moves its exact pose is uncertain, and it must maintain accuracy by continually localising.

I remain optimistic - perhaps foolishly so looking at the state of my finances - that I'll have a working mobile robot using this system by the end of the year. Genuine spatial awareness for mobile robots using inexpensive vision sensing is within reach.
