Simultaneous tracking and environment mapping

My most recent PhD work has been on the simultaneous tracking of objects and inference of the environment within which they are moving.  This is related to SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) problems encountered in robotics, but deals with more continuous environments.  By applying particle filters and some neat non-parametric methods we have been able to get some great results.  I haven’t yet published my results in this area, but I’m currently writing the papers, so will update this page when they are ready.
