Demo illustrating localization of a robot by particle filter.
WiFi measurements are modeled by a Ray-Tracing engine allowing up to 3 walls'reflexion. Particle
filter help to correct odometry'mesurements of the non-holonomoc robot trajectory.

particle filter and non-holonomic trajectory

Run mexme_pf_robot_WIFI.m to compile mex-files on your plateform (be sure to setup previously your compiler by "mex -setup")

Run test_robot_WIFI.m or test_map_wifi.m for demos

It works pretty well. But some one knows how to change the floor plan?

It should work now ...

Furthermore to my last comment, it seems that when I run 32 bit Matlab it will crash after a few iterations.

Thank you for report, I'll check asap...

If you can copy/paste the crash log ...

I'm having trouble with matlab crashing when running the test file. I am using Matlab 2012a, VS10, Win7 x64. I think it might have to do with the mex code not being compatible with -useLargeArrayDim. However, I can get the ray tracing test file to run and give results. Have you had similar issues or advice?
