Project detail

Visual localization in natural environments

Duration: 01.03.2014 — 19.07.2016

On the project

The proposed project deals with localization in natural environments. It builds on the applicant's experience in registration of photos with a 3D geo-referenced terrain model and on the expertise of graphics group @FIT-BUT in image processing, computer graphics & vision, machine learning and experience with research and development of avionics. It proposes an investigation of image to model registration techniques allowing for building accurate visual localization systems that are more robust to qualities of input photos. Particular attention will be devoted to finding applications of visual localization systems in challenging scenarios, e.g. in aircraft systems.
