Some Notes on the Use of Hybrid Maps for Mobile Robots

P. Buschka and A. Saffiotti

Hybrid maps are quickly becoming popular in the field of mobile robotics. There is, however, little understanding of the general principles that can be used to combine different maps into a hybrid one, and to make these maps to cooperate. In this note, we propose a definition and a classification of hybrid maps, and discuss the synergies that can make a hybrid map something more than the sum of its parts. We illustrate these points with experimental results obtained on a metric-topological map.
