In patch-and-stitch localization algorithms, a flip error refers to the kind of error in which a patch is stitched to the map as being wrongly reflected. In this paper, we present an anchor-free localization algorithm which tries to detect and prevent flip errors. The flip error prevention is achieved by two filtering mechanisms: the flip ambiguity test and the flip conflict detection. Based on two techniques, we devised an anchor-free localization algorithm and evaluated the performance of the proposed algorithm though simulations. The results show that our algorithm achieves significant performance improvement over the existing algorithms.
