However, handcrafted topological descriptors are hard to tune and not robust to environmental noise, drastic perspective changes, object occlusion or misdetections.

Our approach models the calibration process compactly using model-free deep reinforcement learning to derive a policy that guides the motions of a robotic arm holding the sensor to efficiently collect measurements that can be used for both camera intrinsic calibration and camera-IMU extrinsic calibration.

As a basis for a localization system we propose a complete on-board mapping pipeline able to map robust meaningful landmarks, such as poles from power lines, in the vicinity of the vehicle.

Visual-inertial systems rely on precise calibrations of both camera intrinsics and inter-sensor extrinsics, which typically require manually performing complex motions in front of a calibration target.

We therefore present SegMap: a map representation solution for localization and mapping based on the extraction of segments in 3D point clouds.

While current methods extract descriptors for the single task of localization, SegMap leverages a data-driven descriptor in order to extract meaningful features that can also be used for reconstructing a dense 3D map of the environment and for extracting semantic information.
