I took a course to have a better understanding of drones and their design. At the end of the course there was a test question that I got wrong and I would like to understand why.

I was supposed to select the choices that best describe SLAM.

and the possible answers were:

  1. Estimates the location of features in the environment?
  2. Controls the radar'srobot's flight through the environment?
  3. Causes the robot to avoid obstacles in the environment?
  4. Navigate in a cluttered environment?
  5. Estimates the position and orientation of the robot with respect to the environment?

At first I knew that at least 3 and 4 were right because I watched a drone doing these things. I also thought that the last answer was linked to these two so I said yes to it too. Finally, I thought that the only thing that was still controlled by the user would be the flight...

Yet I failed again... Therefore what does Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) software do?
