SLAM Performance on Embedded Robots Undergraduate Student Research: Individual Project

  title={SLAM Performance on Embedded Robots Undergraduate Student Research: Individual Project},
  author={Nima Shoghi Ghalehshahi and Ramyad Hadidi and Hyesoon Kim},
We explore whether it is possible to run the popular ORBSLAM2 algorithm (simultaneous localization and mapping) in real-time on the Raspberry Pi 3B+ for use in embedded robots. We use a modified version of ORB-SLAM2 on the Pi and a laptop to measure the performance and accuracy of the algorithm on the EuRoC MAV dataset. We see similar accuracy between the two machines, but the Pi is about 10 times slower. Finally, we explore optimizations that can be applied to speed up execution on the Pi. We…

ORB-SLAM: A Versatile and Accurate Monocular SLAM System

A survival of the fittest strategy that selects the points and keyframes of the reconstruction leads to excellent robustness and generates a compact and trackable map that only grows if the scene content changes, allowing lifelong operation.

ORB-SLAM2: An Open-Source SLAM System for Monocular, Stereo, and RGB-D Cameras

ORB-SLAM2, a complete simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) system for monocular, stereo and RGB-D cameras, including map reuse, loop closing, and relocalization capabilities, is presented, being in most cases the most accurate SLAM solution.

A benchmark for the evaluation of RGB-D SLAM systems

A large set of image sequences from a Microsoft Kinect with highly accurate and time-synchronized ground truth camera poses from a motion capture system is recorded for the evaluation of RGB-D SLAM systems.

Bags of Binary Words for Fast Place Recognition in Image Sequences

A vocabulary tree is built that discretizes a binary descriptor space and uses the tree to speed up correspondences for geometrical verification, and presents competitive results with no false positives in very different datasets.

It is shown that, overall, the overhead added by containers is negligible and this paper presents a performance evaluation of container technologies on constrained devices, in this case, on Raspberry Pi.
