February 2010: I only just realised that this is online… a talk I gave when I visited Microsoft Research in Redmond in September 2008.

February 2010: A new paper in collaboration with Hauke Strasdat and J. M. M. Montiel has been accepted for publication at ICRA 2010, and will be presented in one of the prestigious “50 Years of Robotics” special sessions. We think that this is important work which makes a rigorous analysis of the relative merits of… Read more »
December 2009: Well done to Margarita who passed her PhD viva in great style last week! She is going to stay in my group as a post-doc for the current time.
November 2009: I am very proud that thanks to a lot of hard work, my group managed to submit a fat sheaf of nice papers to CVPR 2010. Fingers crossed for some good reviews come February…
November 2009: I’ve been thinking a lot over the last couple of years, and discussed with my group and others, that there seems to be a set of common `Quality’ principles and methods behind any algorithms in computer vision and robotics that really seem to work. I have tried to write down an initial idea… Read more »
August 2009: New results in collaboration with Javier Civera and J. M. M. Montiel on applying MonoSLAM-type methods to visual odometry will be presented at IROS 2009 in October. Essentially, this is a “forgetting filter” from which features are deleted once they pass from the field of view. The results approach those obtainable from sliding… Read more »
May 2009: Margarita Chli presented our paper on using image-based mutual information measures to infer the correlation structure of visual maps at ICRA 2009 in Kobe, and Javier Civera presented work on sequential camera self-calibration. See the movies and papers below. AVI AVI Automatically and Efficiently Inferring the Hierarchical Structure of Visual Maps (PDF format),… Read more »
April 2009: A small article (mostly sensible!) about my research appeared this week in The Economist.
November 2008: The Special Issue on Visual SLAM of IEEE Transactions on Robotics which I recently guest-edited with José Neira and John Leonard should now have been published. The full contents are available online here, but you or your institution will need to be an IEEE Xplore subscriber to download the full PDFs for the… Read more »
August 2008: Active Matching: a new algorithm developed with Margarita Chli for efficient probabilistic matching of sets of features in images. It combines the advantages of step-by-step active search guided by information theory with a multiple-hypothesis, mixture of Gaussians model able to cope fully with matching ambiguity. We show large reductions in the number of… Read more »
