Nowadays, the demand for optical sensors with faster, cheaper and more accurate technologies has grown tremendously. However with this advance, there is also a need for an increase in speed of processing and treatment of this kind of data. With increasingly advanced applications, these sensors have allowed certain moving bodies to move around in environments in order to locate and avoid possible collisions in a simultaneous location and mapping environment system (SLAM). Throughout this project will be studied techniques of mapping and location of moving bodies applied to a Kinect sensor. Firstly, a study of the bibliography related to these techniques will be done so that it is possible to perform a data collection later. After analyzing the data, it will be possible to identify and implement the best mapping technique applicable to the project.
