### 3.7.216. SLAM problem

Denotes the fact that a constraint was used in the context of the simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem. Given a mobile autonomous robot that, for some reason do not has a direct way to perform self -location (i.e., for instance do not has a GPS), the problem is to dynamically build a map and locate its trajectory on that map from a set of partial snapshots of its environment. Within the context of constraint programming this problem is described in
