Abstract
ObjectVideo, teaming with Professor Frank Dellaert, proposes a real-time system to simultaneously map 3D environments and localize moving agents (including soldiers, vehicles, and robotic platforms) within the acquired map. The technology builds upon Professor Dellaerts decade of experience in localization and mapping as well as ObjectVideos expertise in systems design, computer vision, and mobile device programming. The proposed system uses lightweight low-power and inexpensive sensing and processing hardware as the statistical inference and estimation elements of the proposal are grounded in rigorous and tested technologies. Processing in the proposed system is largely decentralized increasing system robustness and minimizing communication loading of wireless battlefield networks. Finally the computation, display, command and communications are situated on a mobile device that may be worn in a variety of locations depending on mission parameters or used drive external displays.
