To my understanding appearance-based SLAM uses only information coming from sensors for mapping and localization. It completely discards control information from actuators. I'm I correct?

This depends on the localization approach on your SLAM (Simultaneous localization and mapping), i.e. AMCL localization algorithm using the laser (sensor) + wheels encoders (actuators sensors).


[Note]:

This algorithm based on adaptive Monte Carlo + EKF (extended Kalman filter)

  • $\begingroup$ Could you be a little more specific? How does the localization approach make one algorithm appearance-based? $\endgroup$ – Nicolas Schejtman Jan 30 '18 at 18:18

Appearance-based SLAM methods model the set of discrete locations in a space and the existence of paths between these locations.

I suggest you first read this paper Appearance based slam for mobile robot . Try to know the basic idea behind the appearance based slam.
