Conventional simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms rely on geometric measurements and require loop-closure detections to correct for drift accumulated over a vehicle trajectory. Semantic measurements can add measurement redundancy and provide an alternative form of loop closure. We propose two different estimation algorithms that incorporate semantic measurements provided by vision-based object classifiers. An a priori map of regions where the objects can be detected is assumed. .
