Large-area visually augmented navigation for autonomous underwater vehicles
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
This thesis describes a vision-based, large-area, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithm that respects the low-overlap imagery constraints typical of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) while exploiting ...
Large scale structure from motion for autonomous underwater vehicle surveys
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
Our ability to image extended underwater scenes is severely limited by attenuation and backscatter. Generating a composite view from multiple overlapping images is usually the most practical and flexible way around this ...
