Andrew Davison, Imperial College "Live Localisation and Mapping with a 
Single Camera"

30th April 2010, 2-3pm (BST) Room 1.10, Kilburn Building, The University 
of Manchester

Recent advances in probabilistic Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping 
(SLAM) algorithms, together with modern computer power, have made it 
possible to create practical systems able to perform real-time 
estimation of the motion of a camera in 3D purely from the image stream 
it acquires. This is of interest in many application fields, including 
robotics, wearable computing and augmented reality. I will explain the 
main aspects of the algorithms behind visual SLAM techniques, and 
present recent work which is now turning towards not just estimating 
camera motion but also recovering dense scene models in real-time.

Anyone wishing to view via Access Grid should note the following. Please 
check the Jabber room shortly before the start of the seminar to find if 
ScreenStreamer is to be used.

Virtual Venue: University of Manchester Room1:10

Jabber Room: university-of-manchester-(1.10) 

ScreenStreamer: Preferably use ScreenStreamer software - go to 
and select room "University of Manchester (1.10)" from the AGSC section. 
Grab the screen feed (by clicking on it) from the screenstreamer window 
and resize it - more info can be found on 

Alternatively, the screenshot can be accessed at (this IP might change for some sessions - 
please check Jabber).
