SLAM – markerless tracking for AR

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping is a series of complex computations and algorithms which use sensor data to construct a map of an unknown environment while using it at the same time to identify where it is located. This of course is a chicken-and-egg type problem and in order for SLAM to work the technology needs to create a pre-existing map of its surroundings and then orient itself within this map to refine it.
