RGBD Relocalisation Using Pairwise Geometry and Concise Key Point Sets

We describe a novel RGBD relocalisation algorithm based on key point matching. It combines two com- ponents. First, a graph matching algorithm which takes into account the pairwise 3-D geometry amongst the key points, giving…

Towards Robust Real-time Visual SLAM

Our project investigates how to improve feature matching within a single camera Real-time Visual SLAM system. SLAM stands for Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping, when a camera position is estimated simultaneously with sparse point-wise representation of a…

Place Recognition From Disparate Views

Visual place recognition methods which use image matching techniques have shown success in recent years, however their reliance on local features restricts their use to images which are visually similar and which overlap in viewpoint….

ViewNet

Context enhanced networked services by fusing mobile vision and location ViewNet is a 1.5M GBP project jointly funded by the UK Technology Strategy Board, the EPSRC and industrial partners. The aim is to develop the…

Visual SLAM

Simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) is the problem of determining the position of an entity (localisation), such as a robot, whilst at the same time determining the structure of the surrounding environment (mapping). This has been a major topic…

Plane Detection From Single Images

Our work involves the detection of planar structures from single images. This is inspired by human vision – since humans have an impressive ability to understand the content of both the real world and 2D…

Robust visual SLAM using higher-order structure

Jose Martinez Carranza, Andrew Calway We are working with the problem of simultaneous localization and mapping using a single hand-held camera as unique sensor.  Specifically, looking at how to extract a richer representation of the environment…

Robust Visual SLAM for Fast Moving Platforms

Dr. Jose Martinez-Carranza In the last years considerable progress has been achieved for what is known as visual Simultaneous localisation and Mapping (SLAM). Visual SLAM is a technology that provides fast accurate 6D pose estimation…
