  title={AttDLNet: Attention-based DL Network for 3D LiDAR Place Recognition},
  author={Tiago Barros and L. Garrote and Ricardo Pereira and C. Premebida and U. Nunes},
Deep networks have been progressively adapted to new sensor modalities, namely to 3D LiDAR, which led to unprecedented achievements in autonomous vehicle-related applications such as place recognition. One of the main challenges of deep models in place recognition is to extract efficient and descriptive feature representations that relate places based on their similarity. To address the problem of place recognition using LiDAR data, this paper proposes a novel 3D LiDAR-based deep learning… Expand
