Darius made the second place in the “SLAM for AR” competition at ISMAR.

The participants were provided with a visual-inertial dataset captured by a mobile phone and should estimate the 6 DoF camera poses. In the first round teams could test their system on a given dataset and submit the results and a description of the developed SLAM system. Based on their score teams were invited to attend the final round and present their work on a workshop. In the final teams had to run a bigger dataset in a controlled environment and give a presentation about the used techniques. To evaluate the performance tracking accuracy, initialization quality, tracking robustness, relocalization time and computation efficiency was taken into account.

Darius’ Snake-SLAM was awarded with the second place but after the competition the organizers discovered a problem with their evaluation tool. Darius’ robustness score and so final result was not computed correctly and he actually should have been the first place.

Congratulations to Darius!
