Lost Shopping! Monocular Localization in Large Indoor Spaces

Shenlong Wang, Sanja Fidler, Raquel Urtasun
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)  
In this paper we propose a novel approach to localization in very large indoor spaces (i.e., shopping malls with over 200 stores) that takes a single image and a floor plan of the environment as input.  ...  The power of our approach is that it does not use any prior information about appearance and instead exploits text detections corresponding to shop names as a cue for localization.  ...  For both of these malls high quality floor plans are available in an easy parseable, vector format.  ...

Image Based Localization in Indoor Environments

Jason Zhi Liang, Nicholas Corso, Eric Turner, Avideh Zakhor
2013 2013 Fourth International Conference on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application  
In this paper, we extend this approach to indoors by utilizing a 3D locally referenced image database generated by an ambulatory depth acquisition backpack that is originally developed for 3D modeling  ...  We demonstrate retrieval rate of 94% over a set of 83 query images taken in an indoor shopping center and characterize pose recovery accuracy of the same set.  ...  In indoor environments such as a mall, this would mean localization accuracy remains high in the center of the building, but drops sharply near the periphery, such as entrances or exits.  ...
