Associating Locations Between Indoor Journeys from Wearable Cameras [chapter]

Jose Rivera-Rubio, Ioannis Alexiou, Anil A. Bharath
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
First, we compare different techniques for visual feature extraction with the aim of associating locations between different journeys along roughly the same physical route.  ...  The main question we address is whether it is possible to crowdsource navigational data in the form of video sequences captured from wearable cameras.  ...  Conclusion We have presented several contributions in the topic of indoor localization using visual path matching from wearable and hand-held cameras.  ...

An assistive haptic interface for appearance-based indoor navigation

Jose Rivera-Rubio, Kai Arulkumaran, Hemang Rishi, Ioannis Alexiou, Anil A. Bharath
2016 Computer Vision and Image Understanding  
Here, we propose a navigation technique using low-resolution images from wearable or hand-held cameras to identify landmarks that are indicative of a user's position along crowdsourced paths.  ...  We assess the accuracy of vision-based localisation by making comparisons with estimates of location derived from both a recent SLAM-based algorithm and from indoor surveying equipment.  ...  They launch an App which starts collecting images from the camera of the Senseg TM tablet or from a wearable camera paired with the tablet.  ...

Appearance-based indoor localization: A comparison of patch descriptor performance

Jose Rivera-Rubio, Ioannis Alexiou, Anil A. Bharath
2015 Pattern Recognition Letters  
Such visual information could be collected by crowdsourcing low-resolution video feeds, allowing journeys made by different users to be associated with each other, and location to be inferred without requiring  ...  For each type of descriptor, we also tested different techniques to encode visual structure and to search between journeys to estimate a user's position.  ...  The dataset includes both hand-held and wearable camera examples, all containing ground-truth location relative to distance traversed along labelled paths.  ...
