Gregoire Payen de la Garanderie: Combined Detection, Tracking and 3D Pose Estimation within Monocular Imagery for Autonomous Vehicles

1:00pm, E246

Self-driving vehicles have received much media coverage in recent years. Underpinning this technology is the ability of vehicles to sense, learn and understand their environment. While current prototypes rely on expensive on-board rigs combining an array of sensors such as radar, lidar and camera, recent research has increasingly focused on cheaper alternatives such as stereo cameras. In this talk, we present a novel approach which jointly solves object detection, frame-to-frame tracking and 3D pose estimation within monocular video imagery based on a jointly optimized deep convolutional neural network architecture. Our proposed approach is evaluated within the context of onboard sensing for vehicle detection and tracking from a forward-facing camera.

Nodes Seminar:

2:00pm, E240

Interconnection networks form the communication fabrics of distributed computer systems and are common-place in distributed-memory multiprocessor machines (supercomputers), systems on chips, and data centres.
