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 »
June 2007: Some new results published at RSS 2007 on extending the range of monocular SLAM using a hierarchical submapping approach, in collaboration with Laura Clemente, José Neira and Mingo Tardós from the University of Zaragoza and Ian Reid from Oxford. High quality submaps containing around 100 features are built using MonoSLAM with inverse depth… Read more »
June 2007: Javier Civera, J. M. M. Montiel (University of Zaragoza) and I have been working on Dimensionless Monocular SLAM: a formulation of MonoSLAM which uses only dimensionless quantities and makes explicit the fact that a single camera builds maps with undetermined scale. In this formulation, the previous metric tuning parameters of Inverse Depth MonoSLAM… Read more »
November 2006: Excuse me for slipping into blog mode temporarily, but are superhuman AI and the technological singularity really coming in the near future (i.e. the next 20–30 years)? As I see the incredible recent progress in computer processing power, computer vision algorithms, search engines, miniaturisation, nanotechnology and so on it seems more and more… Read more »
