Current fiducial marker detection algorithms rely on marker IDs for false positive rejection. [] Key Result Our contribution is significant because fiducial markers are often used in real-time applications (e.g. marker assisted robot navigation) where heavy computation is required by other parts of the system.
LiDARTag: A Real-Time Fiducial Tag using Point Clouds
TLDR
The experimental results confirm the proposed technique can reliably provide a tag's pose and its unique ID code, and nicely complements available visual fiducial markers as the tag design is compatible with available techniques, allowing for efficient multi-sensor fusion and calibration tasks.
Smart Artificial Markers for Accurate Visual Mapping and Localization
TLDR
The approach decreases the Relative Positioning Error (RPE) by 85% in the mapping stage and Absolute Trajectory Error (ATE) by 50% for the camera localization stage in comparison with the state-of-the-art methods present in the literature.
Efficient and Robust Circle Grids for Fiducial Detection
TLDR
A new marker coding system design based on 3 × 3 grids of individual circles based on a novel way of composing individual fiducial tags into larger grids that enables the use of larger markers without adapting the detection pipeline, resulting in additional occlusion resistance and error detection.
LiDARTag: A Real-Time Fiducial Tag System for Point Clouds
TLDR
LiDARTag, a novel fiducial tag design and detection algorithm suitable for light detection and ranging (LiDAR) point clouds, is introduced and it is confirmed that the proposed method can reliably provide a tag's pose and unique ID code.

DeepTag: A General Framework for Fiducial Marker Design and Detection
TLDR
A general deep learning based framework, DeepTag, for ducial marker design and detection and an effective procedure to synthesize training data on the y without manual annotations is proposed, which can easily adapt to existing and newly-designed marker families.
STag: A Stable Fiducial Marker System
TopoTag: A Robust and Scalable Topological Fiducial Marker System
TLDR
Experiments on the dataset and real indoor and outdoor scene tests with a rolling shutter camera both show that TopoTag significantly outperforms previous fiducial marker systems in terms of various metrics, including detection accuracy, vertex jitter, pose jitter and accuracy.
Experimental Comparison of Fiducial Markers for Pose Estimation
TLDR
This paper presents an experimental comparison of four different open-source fiducial markers that are widely used in UAS applications (ARTag, AprilTag, ArUco, and STag) based on their localization capabilities as well as their computational efficiency.
