Autonomy for Mobility

The Robot Learning Lab organizes a bi-weekly reading group (no ECTS) on Autonomy for Mobility in cooperation with the Autonomous Intelligent Systems Lab. Here we discuss recent publications on the field as well as work in progress in our groups. The main focus of this reading group is the area of state estimation and perception for autonomous navigation scenarios. Speakers are the PhD students of the AIS and RL labs.

During the meeting, the presenter gives a short talk (25 min) summarizing a paper either previously voted for or their own research work and leads a subsequent discussion (30 min). The target audience consists of Professors, PostDocs, PhDs, and interested Master's students.

To stay informed about all future instances, sign up for the mailing list.

  • Title: CalibDNN: Multimodal Sensor Calibration for Perception Using Deep Neural Networks
  • Abstract: Current perception systems often carry multimodal imagers and sensors such as 2D cameras and 3D LiDAR sensors. To fuse and utilize the data for downstream perception tasks, robust and accurate calibration of the multimodal sensor data is essential. We propose a novel deep learning-driven technique (CalibDNN) for accurate calibration among multimodal sensor, specifically LiDAR-Camera pairs. The key innovation of the proposed work is that it does not require any specific calibration targets or hardware assistants, and the entire processing is fully automatic with a single model and single iteration. Results comparison among different methods and extensive experiments on different datasets demonstrates the state-of-the-art performance.
