Abstract: This paper presents a very efficient SLAM algorithm that works by hierarchically dividing the map into local regions and subregions. At each level of the hierarchy each region stores a matrix representing some of the landmarks contained in this region. For keeping the matrices small only those landmarks are represented being observable from outside the region.

A measurement is integrated into a local subregion using $O(k^2)$ computation time for $k$ landmarks in a subregion. When the robot moves to a different subregion a global update is necessary requiring only $O(k^3 log n)$ computation time for $n$ overall landmarks.

The algorithm is evaluated for map quality, storage space and computation time using simulated and real experiments in an office environment.
