June 2008: New results on real-time tracking of motion with extreme dynamics using MonoSLAM with a gigabit ethernet camera at 200Hz, published at RSS 2008 in collaboration with Peter Gemeiner and Marcus Vincze from Vienna University of Technology. We show results of smooth real-time 3D tracking of a vigourously shaken hand-held camera, and one thrown… Read more »

May 2008: One post-doc position and two fully funded PhD candidate positions on high performance visual SLAM now available: please see this advert for details.
April 2008: My work with Javier Civera, Juan Magallón and J. M. M. Montiel (University of Zaragoza) on visual mosaicing using SLAM-like techniques (following on from the `Visual Compass’ method published at ICRA 2006) has recently been accepted for publication in the Internional Journal of Computer Vision. The advantage of this technique is that it… Read more »
March 2008: Singularity Indicators: a blog-like personal view.
February 2008: New results to be published at ICRA 2008 demonstrating online model selection within monocular SLAM in collaboration with Javier Civera and J. M. M. Montiel (University of Zaragoza). Using an interacting multiple model (IMM) framework, we show that Bayesian model selection can be applied sequentially during real-time monocular SLAM to improve accuracy by… Read more »
December 2007: I have been lucky enough to be awarded an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council. This is a new Europe-wide scheme of individual grants to fund five year research projects. The focus of my project is highly efficient visual SLAM algorithms able to function at high frame-rates and track dynamic motion…. Read more »
November 2007: The deadline for the IEEE T-RO Special Issue on Visual SLAM which I am guest-editing has been extended to December 15th 2007.
September 2007: I gave a tutorial on Visual SLAM at BMVC 2007 at the University of Warwick, together with Andrew Calway and Walterio Mayol from the University of Bristol. Resources from the tutorial are available from this page in Bristol.
August 2007: I have just accepted an invitation to serve as Publicity Chair for Robotics: Science and Systems 2008. This will be the fourth time this prestigious single track international conference will be held, and in 2008 it will move from the US to Europe for the first time to be held in Zurich, Switzerland….

July 2007: I will be guest-editing a Special Issue on Visual SLAM of IEEE Transactions on Robotics together with José Neira from the University of Zaragoza and John Leonard from MIT. The aim is to produce a comprehensive special issue which showcases the amazing recent advances in this research area. We are currently seeking good… Read more »
