We will have an invited talk by Prof. Jose Neira, University of Zaragoza, Spain. The abstract of the talk is given below;
Title: Is SLAM solved? Open problems in Simultaneous Localization and Mapping
In this talk I will summarize the work that my group has carried out in the development of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) systems for mapping indoor and outdoor environments with a hand-held camera as the only sensor. I will describe the fundamental algorithms that we have developed to deal with issues such as large-scale and data association, their possibilities, limitations and open issues, and illustrate them with experiments carried out in Zaragoza, Oxford, London (in collaboration with Oxford University and Imperial College London), Sydney (in collaboration with the University of Sydney), and in Milan, as part of the European RAWSEEDS project.
Speaker Short Bio:
Jose Neira is full professor at the Computer Science and Systems Engineering dept., Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain.
