Compute path in absolute frame from sequence of measurements

I have a sequence of measurements $\{(x_i, y_i, \theta_i)\}_{i = 1 \:...\: N}$. Each of these represents the new pose of the robot seen from the previous pose, i.e. a measurement $(x', y', \theta')$ ...

Reference frame, vector

How do I specify the directions of a unit vector $X_n$ and $Y_n$ of a frame $\{n\}$ at an angle $θ$ relative to a frame $\{a\}$ in the form $$ X_n=cosθX_a + sinθY_a $$ $$ Y_n=-sinθX_a+cosθY_a $$ ? Can ...

Absolute 2D pose from previous pose and measurement

I have a pose $\boldsymbol{x}_0 = (x, y, \theta)$ in an absolute frame, right-handed and centered in (0, 0, 0). I obtain a measurement $\boldsymbol{m} = (\Delta x, \Delta y, \Delta \theta)$ in the ...
