Robot localization in 3D environments is an important topic in mobile robotics. Traditional approaches just deal with 2D maps, but many mobile robots operate in our normal 3D space. To be able to locate a robot in a continuous 3D map (represented by meshes), the Augmented Monte Carlo Localization can be extended to higher dimensions.
