"..."This localisation and mapping technology turns a camera into a flexible, real-time position sensor. It has all kinds of potential applications," Andrew said.

The system comprises a mobile video camera connected to a laptop computer, which analyses the images it receives using software developed by the researchers. As the camera moves, the system picks out landmarks as reference points and makes a map of their 3D locations against which to measure its position."
