We present an end-to-end joint training framework that explicitly models 6-DoF motion of multiple dynamic objects, ego-motion and depth in a monocular camera setup without supervision. Our technical contributions are three-fold. First, we highlight the fundamental difference between inverse and forward projection while modeling the individual motion of each rigid object, and propose a geometrically correct projection pipeline using a neural forward projection module. Second, we design a unified…

Instance-aware multi-object self-supervision for monocular depth prediction
TLDR
The proposed self-supervised monocular image-to-depth prediction framework is shown to largely outperform these methods on standard benchmarks and the impact of the dynamic motion on these benchmarks is exposed.
Unsupervised Scale-consistent Depth Learning from Video
TLDR
A monocular depth estimation method SC-Depth, which requires only unlabelled videos for training and enables the scale-consistent prediction at inference time, and a self-discovered mask to automatically localize moving objects that violate the underlying static scene assumption and cause noisy signals during training is proposed.
Disentangling Object Motion and Occlusion for Unsupervised Multi-frame Monocular Depth
TLDR
The method, called DynamicDepth, is a new framework trained via a self-supervised cycle consistent learning scheme to solve the mismatch problem and significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art monocular depth prediction methods, especially in the areas of dynamic objects.
Attentive and Contrastive Learning for Joint Depth and Motion Field Estimation
TLDR
This work designs an integrated motion model that estimates the motion of the camera and object in the first and second warping stages, respectively, controlled by the attention module through a shared motion encoder.
Auto-Rectify Network for Unsupervised Indoor Depth Estimation.
TLDR
This work establishes that the complex ego-motions exhibited in handheld settings are a critical obstacle for learning depth, and proposes an Auto-Rectify Network with novel loss functions, which can automatically learn to rectify images during training.
Fine-grained Semantics-aware Representation Enhancement for Self-supervised Monocular Depth Estimation
TLDR
This work proposes novel ideas to improve self-supervised monocular depth estimation by leveraging cross-domain information, especially scene semantics, and proposes two ideas: a metric learning approach that exploits the semantics-guided local geometry to optimize intermediate depth representations and a novel feature fusion module that judiciously utilizes cross-modality between two heterogeneous feature representations.
Dyna-DM: Dynamic Object-aware Self-supervised Monocular Depth Maps
TLDR
This paper proposes only using invariant pose loss for the first few epochs during training, disregarding small potentially dynamic objects when training, and employing an appearance-based approach to separately estimate object pose for truly dynamic objects to result in qualitatively and quantitatively improved depth maps.
Unsupervised Monocular Depth Estimation in Highly Complex Environments
TLDR
The problem of unsupervised monocular depth estimation in highly complex scenarios is investigated and an image adaptation approach is proposed to evaluate the quality of transferred images and re-weight the corresponding losses, so as to improve the performance of the adapted depth model.
PLNet: Plane and Line Priors for Unsupervised Indoor Depth Estimation
TLDR
This paper proposes PLNet that leverages the plane and line priors to enhance the depth estimation and evaluates the flatness and straightness of the predicted point cloud on the reliable planar and linear regions.
Adaptive confidence thresholding for monocular depth estimation
TLDR
This paper proposes a new approach to leverage pseudo ground truth depth maps of stereo images generated from self-supervised stereo matching methods and proposes the probabilistic framework that refines the monocular depth map with the help of its uncertainty map through the pixel-adaptive convolution (PAC) layer.

The main contribution is to explicitly consider the inferred 3D geometry of the whole scene, and enforce consistency of the estimated 3D point clouds and ego-motion across consecutive frames, and outperforms the state-of-the-art for both breadth and depth.
