Optimizing 3D Environment Reconstruction
Yan (Asta) Li
Kang Zhang, Dr. Xin Li

A technique used to map unknown environment while identifying the pose (position and orientation) of the sensor
Implement and optimize simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM); visualize accurate, dense 3D maps of unknown environments in real time
Microsoft Kinect: infrared (IR) depth sensor and color (RGB) camera
Infrared Emitter
IR Depth Sensor
Color Sensor
C++ compiled in MS Visual Studio;
Mobile Robot Programming Toolkit (MRPT) framework and OpenCV libraries
Mobile Robot Programming Toolkit (MRPT)
~ open-source
~ simple, minimal structure
~ familiar C++ source code
Optimized Algorithm
Scan unknown environment
Detect and track features using SIFT
Compute descriptors and correspondences
Register point clouds and estimate pose
Visualize global mapping
Scale-Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT): robust feature detection and tracking algorithm, invariant to scale, rotation, viewpoint, illumination, and image distortion.
Although the environment mapping is sparse, real-time and interactive frame rates during reconstruction are achieved with adequate accuracy.
~ Applications for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
~ Useful in GPS-denied environments
~ Assist with first-responders, police work, search and rescue
~ Real-time processing speed is a primary concern
~ Lack of graphics card stresses accuracy/time trade-offs
~ Hardware limitations: ineffective in direct sunlight, restricted maximum environment size
~ Accumulated position drift error (loop closure)
