The original group in what is now the ORI, the Mobile Robotics Group is about building robots and systems which answer “where am I and what surrounds me?” On real vehicles in real-hard places.
It has a proud systems heritage, taking on ambitious field deployments which shine a light on what doesn’t work and has to be fixed by smart application of machine learning, AI and robotics expertise.
Kidnapped Radar: Topological Radar Localisation using Rotationally-Invariant Metric Learning Abstract - This paper presents a system for robust, large-scale topological localisation using Frequency-Modulated ContinuousWave (FMCW) scanning radar. We learn a metric space for embedding polar radar scans using CNN [...]
This blog post provides an overview of our paper: [bibtex key="ICRA19_porav"] Abstract We present a method for improving segmentation tasks on images affected by adherent rain drops and streaks. We introduce a novel stereo dataset recorded using a system that [...]

The Right (Angled) Perspective: Improving the Understanding of Road Scenes Using Boosted Inverse Perspective Mapping
Accurate scene understanding is paramount to the deployment of autonomous vehicles in real-world traffic. They need to perceive and fully understand their environment to accomplish their navigation tasks in a natural [...]
