Novel SLAM

Novel Visual SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) algorithms, are able to reconstructs, in real time, camera ego-motion and 3D sparse map of the surrounding environment. Usually the scene contains some dominant planes, like walls, floors, building facades and roadway.The detection of these regions plays an important role in car ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System), Augmented reality applications and Indoor navigation. The goal of this thesis is enrich actual solutions, enhancing detection and recognition capabilities of actual systems.


The thesis will be developed in collaboration with ST Microelectronics AST Shared Innovation - Computer Vision Research Roadmap
