AutoPlace: Robust Place Recognition with Low-cost Single-chip Automotive Radar

  title={AutoPlace: Robust Place Recognition with Low-cost Single-chip Automotive Radar},
  author={Kaiwen Cai and Bing Wang and Chris Xiaoxuan Lu},
This paper presents a novel place recognition approach to autonomous vehicles by using low-cost, single-chip automotive radar. Aimed at improving recognition robustness and fully exploiting the rich information provided by this emerging automotive radar, our approach follows a principled pipeline that comprises (1) dynamic points removal from instant Doppler measurement, (2) spatial-temporal feature embedding on radar point clouds, and (3) retrieved candidates refinement from Radar Cross… Expand
