FAB-MAP + RatSLAM : appearance-based SLAM for multiple times of day
Glover, Arren, Maddern, William, Milford, Michael, & Wyeth, Gordon (2010) FAB-MAP + RatSLAM : appearance-based SLAM for multiple times of day. In Proceedings of 2010 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA2010), IEEE, Egan Center, Anchorage, Alaska.
Appearance-based mapping and localisation is especially challenging when separate processes of mapping and localisation occur at different times of day. The problem is exacerbated in the outdoors where continuous change in sun angle can drastically affect the appearance of a scene. We confront this challenge by fusing the probabilistic local feature based data association method of FAB-MAP with the pose cell filtering and experience mapping of RatSLAM. We evaluate the effectiveness of our amalgamation of methods using five datasets captured throughout the day from a single camera driven through a network of suburban streets. We show further results when the streets are re-visited three weeks later, and draw conclusions on the value of the system for lifelong mapping.
