Abstract

In this paper, we address the topic of outdoor localization and tracking using monocular camera setups with poor GPS priors. We leverage 2.5 D building maps, which are freely available from open-source databases such as OpenStreetMap.
The main contributions of our work are a fast initialization method and a non-linear optimization scheme. The initialization upgrades a visual SLAM reconstruction with an absolute scale. The non-linear optimization uses the 2.5 D building model footprint, which further improves the tracking accuracy and the scale estimation. A pose optimization step relates the vision-based camera pose estimation from SLAM to the position information received through GPS, in order to fix the common problem of drift. We evaluate our approach on a set of challenging scenarios. The experimental results show that our approach achieves improved accuracy and robustness with an advantage in run-time over previous setups.
