360(o) Camera Alignment via Segmentation

no code implementations ECCV 2020 Benjamin Davidson, Mohsan S. Alvi, João F. Henriques

Panoramic 360º images taken under unconstrained conditions present a significant challenge to current state-of-the-art recognition pipelines, since the assumption of a mostly upright camera is no longer valid.

CASSPR: Cross Attention Single Scan Place Recognition

1 code implementation ICCV 2023 Yan Xia, Mariia Gladkova, Rui Wang, Qianyun Li, Uwe Stilla, João F. Henriques, Daniel Cremers

CASSPR uses queries from one branch to try to match structures in the other branch, ensuring that both extract self-contained descriptors of the point cloud (rather than one branch dominating), but using both to inform the output global descriptor of the point cloud.
