Navigation Toolbox™ provides a library of algorithms and analysis tools to design, simulate, and deploy motion planning and navigation systems. You can create 2D and 3D map representations using your own data or generate maps using the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms included in the toolbox. The SLAM map builder app lets you interactively visualize and debug map generation.
The toolbox provides customizable search and sampling-based path planners; sensor models for GPS, IMU, and INS; algorithms for path following; and multi-sensor pose estimation. You can test your algorithms by deploying them directly to hardware (with MATLAB Coder™ or Simulink Coder™). The toolbox also includes reference examples for self-driving car and robotics applications to kick-start with your path planning and navigation workflow.
