New paper accepted at CVPR'18!

Our paper A Unifying Contrast Maximization Framework for Event Cameras, with Applications to Motion, Depth and Optical Flow Estimation (together with Guillermo Gallego and Davide Scaramuzza) was accepeted for spotlight presentation at CVPR’18!

My paper on Event-based Multi-View Stereo accepted at IJCV!

My paper EMVS: Event-Based Multi-View Stereo - 3D Reconstruction with an Event Camera in Real-Time about semi-dense 3D reconstruction with an event camera has been accepted to the International Journal of Computer Vision!

This work is the first to show that event cameras can be used to provide accurate, semi-dense 3D maps of a given environment, without explicitly trying to solve data association. You can watch the video here!

First ever closed-loop autonomous flight with an event camera!

I am happy to announce today that my team achieved the first ever closed-loop autonomous flight using an event camera for state estimation! Watch the video here! This achievement is the product of several years of research, and I am very proud of the result. Thanks to the event camera, out quadrotor can “see” in high-speed, even in dark environments. The algorithm running onboard the quadrotor is largely based on my recent paper: Real-time Visual-Inertial Odometry for Event Cameras using Keyframe-based Nonlinear Optimization, which we extended to use standard frames as an additional sensing modality in a following paper: Hybrid, Frame and Event based Visual Inertial Odometry for Robust, Autonomous Navigation of Quadrotors.
