SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) technology has been studied to look for current position and generate map simultaneously in computer vision research area. The technique is one of the most widely researched topics in Robotics and has become applicable to UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) recently for autonomous navigation flight. In case of indoor environment which cannot support GPS information, SLAM is especially necessary to recognize current position. However it is difficult to
