Research summary

In the last years considerable progress has been achieved for what is known as visual Simultaneous localisation and Mapping (SLAM).

Visual SLAM is a technology that provides fast accurate 6D pose estimation of a moving camera and a 3D representation of the scene observed with the camera. Applications for this technology include: navigation in GPS-denied environments, virtual augmentation of objects in video footage, and video-game interaction among others

Despite the achievements, there are still challenges to be faced. A practical one, but yet quite important, is that of using visual SLAM systems on low budget platforms where computer power is ...

Dr. Jose Martinez-Carranza is a Research Associate at the Visual Information Laboratory within the Computer Science department at the University of Bristol.
He obtained his PhD within the same department in 2012. He also holds a MSc in Computer Science (Highest Grades Award) from the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE) and a first degree in Computer Science (Highest Honours: Cum Laude) from Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP), both institutions from Mexico.

In the last years his main interests have focused on topics such as Visual SLAM for real time applications, stochastic estimation, and pattern recognition.
