Lay Summary (Italian)

Lead
Autonomous drones are crucial to search and rescue people in the aftermath of a natural disaster. This proposal aims at developing methods to allow autonomous navigation in challenging conditions.
Lay summary

The main goal is to develop a low latency state estimation pipeline using standard cameras in combination with event cameras, which offer increased robustness to motion blur, high dynamic range, and low latency, thus allowing operation closed to obstacles and in extremely challenging lighting conditions.

Abstract
AbstractVisual Localization is one of the key enabling technologies for autonomous driving and augmented reality. High quality datasets with accurate 6 Degree-of-Freedom (DoF) reference poses are the foundation for benchmarking and improving existing methods. Traditionally, reference poses have been obtained via Structure-from-Motion (SfM). However, SfM itself relies on local features which are prone to fail when images were taken under different conditions, e.g., day/night changes. At the same time, manually annotating feature correspondences is not scalable and potentially inaccurate. In this work, we propose a semi-automated approach to generate reference poses based on feature matching between renderings of a 3D model and real images via learned features. Given an initial pose estimate, our approach iteratively refines the pose based on feature matches against a rendering of the model from the current pose estimate. We significantly improve the nighttime reference poses of the popular Aachen Day-Night dataset, showing that state-of-the-art visual localization methods perform better (up to 47%) than predicted by the original reference poses. We extend the dataset with new nighttime test images, provide uncertainty estimates for our new reference poses, and introduce a new evaluation criterion. We will make our reference poses and our framework publicly available upon publication.
