What technologies and methodologies are available to remotely map a room?

DSIAC was asked for sensor technologies and methodologies for obstacle and room mapping. DSIAC performed open-source and DTIC literature searches for relevant information. The most relevant technologies were various sensor systems integrated on either autonomous ground robots or unmanned aircraft systems, with map generation occurring with software methods from the collected sensor data. Various projects and proposals were summarized in this report. Finally, a search of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) database was done to collect unmanned ground and small unmanned aircraft systems designed for surveying and mapping missions. A list of the unmanned ground systems was attached separately.
