September 2011: We just said farewell to Adrien Angeli who left the lab to return to Corsica and work in a start-up company there after three years as a post-doc in the group. We marked the sad occasion of his leaving with an excellent Korean meal and a rapidly-becoming-a-tradition karaoke session. We’ll miss him and… Read more »
[News Archive] September 2011: Applications of the Legendre-Fenchel Transform
September 2011: Ankur Handa, with the close support of Richard Newcombe and Adrien Angeli, has been investigating the role that the Legendre-Fenchel Transform can play in optimisation problems in computer vision (for example in the depth map construction component of our new DTAM system). It gives a standard procedure for setting up and solving a… Read more »
[News Archive] July 2011: a workshop on “Live Dense Reconstruction using Moving Cameras”
July 2011: Richard Newcombe, Andrew Davison and George Vogiatzis (Aston University) are organising a workshop on “Live Dense Reconstruction using Moving Cameras” to be held at ICCV in November this year. See the workshop website, and please consider submitting an extended abstract describing a demonstration or poster in this area.
[News Archive] March 2011: SLAM-Based Automatic Extrinsic Calibration of a Multi-Camera Rig
March 2011: Gerardo Carrera and Adrien Angeli will go to ICRA in Shanghai in May to present our work on automatic calibration of a multi-camera rig. We show that a rig of two or more cameras mounted on a mobile robot can have their relative extrinsic locations automatically calibrated, even if they have no overlap… Read more »

December 2010: I am transferring more content to our Robot Vision Research Group Webpage, including now a full set of downloadable publications and most recently a videos page where there is a link to the imperialrobotvision channel on youtube.
[News Archive] November 2010: Dyson
November 2010: Dyson, with whom I’ve been working recently on robotics and vision applications, are still expanding their robotics team and are looking for another Robotics System Engineer and also a Robotics Software Engineer, a to work at their R&D centre in Malmesbury, UK. Ideally the Robotics System Engineer will be someone with post-graduate level… Read more »
[News Archive] October 2010: Our new Robot Vision Research Group Webpage has now gone online
October 2010: Our new Robot Vision Research Group Webpage has now gone online, and I will gradually transfer most of the research content from this page to that site. In the meantime, please take a look.
[News Archive] October 2010: Margarita Chli has now left my group
October 2010: After completing a PhD and one year post-doc here, Margarita Chli has now left my group and joined the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich as a Senior Researcher: see her new webpage here. We wish her the best of luck in her new job!
[News Archive] September 2010: Real-Time Spherical Mosaicing using Whole Image Alignment
September 2010: At ECCV Steven Lovegrove and I presented our paper on live spherical mosaicing and we also gave a live demo of the system. In this work, we show how to make a mosaicing system which operates sequentially in real-time but also generates globally consistent mosaics over a whole sphere. As video is gathered… Read more »
[News Archive] September 2010: Live Feature Clustering in Video Using Appearance and 3D Geometry
September 2010: Adrien Angeli presented our paper at BMVC on live feature clustering. This is work in the direction of understanding how appearance and geometry information can be used in a more unified way in visual SLAM than in current systems where place recognition and loop closure detection is done with bag-of-words type approaches which… Read more »
