Perceiving 3D information is of paramount importance in many applications of computer vision. Recent advances in monocular depth estimation have shown that gaining such knowledge from a single camera input is possible by training deep neural networks to predict inverse depth and pose, without the necessity of ground truth data. The majority of such approaches, however, require camera parameters to be fed explicitly during training. As a result, image sequences from wild cannot be used during…

SUB-Depth: Self-distillation and Uncertainty Boosting Self-supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
This work proposes SUB-Depth, a universal multi-task training framework for self-supervised monocular depth estimation (SDE), and proposes homoscedastic uncertainty formulations for each task to penalise areas likely to be affected by teacher network noise, or violate SDE assumptions.

High Quality Monocular Depth Estimation via Transfer Learning
TLDR
A convolutional neural network for computing a high-resolution depth map given a single RGB image with the help of transfer learning, which outperforms state-of-the-art on two datasets and also produces qualitatively better results that capture object boundaries more faithfully.
Depth From Videos in the Wild: Unsupervised Monocular Depth Learning From Unknown Cameras
TLDR
This work is the first to learn the camera intrinsic parameters, including lens distortion, from video in an unsupervised manner, thereby allowing us to extract accurate depth and motion from arbitrary videos of unknown origin at scale.
Digging Into Self-Supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
It is shown that a surprisingly simple model, and associated design choices, lead to superior predictions, and together result in both quantitatively and qualitatively improved depth maps compared to competing self-supervised methods.
Learning Monocular Depth by Distilling Cross-domain Stereo Networks
TLDR
This paper proposes to use the stereo matching network as a proxy to learn depth from synthetic data and use predicted stereo disparity maps for supervising the monocular depth estimation network.
3D Packing for Self-Supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
This work proposes a novel self-supervised monocular depth estimation method combining geometry with a new deep network, PackNet, learned only from unlabeled monocular videos, which outperforms other self, semi, and fully supervised methods on the KITTI benchmark.
Learning Depth from Monocular Videos Using Direct Methods
TLDR
It is argued that the depth CNN predictor can be learned without a pose CNN predictor and demonstrated empirically that incorporation of a differentiable implementation of DVO - along with a novel depth normalization strategy - substantially improves performance over state of the art that use monocular videos for training.
Single View Stereo Matching
TLDR
This paper shows for the first time that the monocular depth estimation problem can be reformulated as two sub-problems, a view synthesis procedure followed by stereo matching, with two intriguing properties, namely i) geometrical constraints can be explicitly imposed during inference; ii) demand on labelled depth data can be greatly alleviated.
HR-Depth: High Resolution Self-Supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
An improved DepthNet, HR-Depth, is presented with two effective strategies: (1) re-design the skip-connection in DepthNet to get better high-resolution features and (2) propose feature fusion Squeeze-and-Excitation module to fuse feature more efficiently.
On the Uncertainty of Self-Supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
This work explores for the first time how to estimate the uncertainty for this task and how this affects depth accuracy, and proposes a novel peculiar technique specifically designed for self-supervised approaches.
Self-Supervised Monocular Trained Depth Estimation Using Self-Attention and Discrete Disparity Volume
TLDR
The extension of the state-of-the-art self-supervised monocular trained depth estimator Monodepth2 with these two ideas allows us to design a model that produces the best results in the field in KITTI 2015 and Make3D, closing the gap with respect self- supervised stereo training and fully supervised approaches.
