Dr Luca Benedetti from Kudan will be delivering a keynote address entitled: “Visual SLAM in the Wild’” at the UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition. The event takes place at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes, UK, on Thursday 6 June 2019.
With simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) gaining traction in the world of industrial vision, Benedetti will describe the real-world challenges of deploying a SLAM system across a variety of applications as well as designing a SLAM system that's versatile both in terms of hardware and software.
SLAM refers to the process of determining the position and orientation (localization) of a sensor with respect to its surroundings, as well as simultaneously building a map of the surrounding environment. Most modern SLAM systems used today are based on vision, as they use one or more cameras as the main sensing device and visual SLAM is quickly becoming an important advancement in embedded vision with many potential applications.
The Machine Vision Conference program features around 60 technical seminars across eight different subject areas: Vision in Robotics, Understanding Vision Technology, Deep Learning and Embedded Vision, 3D Vision, Optics and Illumination, Camera Technology, Systems and Applications, and Vision Innovation. The Exhibition features a cross section of companies that serve the machine vision industry.
