I am a PhD student currently in my second year. My area of research is Computer Vision and I am a member of the Real-Time Vision Group and the Visual Information Laboratory. My supervisor is Andrew Calway.


Place recognition from disparate views

We use detected objects as basic features in a semantic place recognition system with the aim of allowing recognition when views are disparate. This is achieved by constructing a 2D place model of object positions and then using training examples to compute the probability that a pair depict the same place. We also generate an estimate of the relative pose of the cameras. Results on a dataset of 40 urban locations show good recognition performance and pose estimation, even for highly disparate views.
