VILO - visual Lidar odometry based on monocular camera
Sherif A.S. Mohamed

Implement a visual odometry module based on images capture by a single camera to avoid baseline problem in stereo cameras.

Implement an algorithm to build depth-map based on input from LIDAR.

Implement a tightly coupled-fusion algorithm to fuse the two modules to achieve more robustness and better accuracy.


I am working on a manuscript that expected to be publish to a conference paper about the results I’ve collected from this visit.

ESLAM - A lightweight and realtime SLAM for UAVs based on Event cameras
Sherif A.S. Mohamed

Extract data by mounting our DAVIS camera to the AMUSE platform and perform different routs and scenarios. We expect to work on the extracted data to complete one of our current work and publish the work on a peer-reviewed journal.
