The simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) method based on the RGB-D sensor is widely researched in recent years. However, the accuracy of the RGB-D SLAM relies heavily on correspondence feature points, and the position would be lost in case of scenes with sparse textures. Therefore, plenty of fusion methods using the RGB-D information and inertial measurement unit (IMU) data have investigated to improve the accuracy of SLAM system. However, these fusion methods usually do not take into account the size of matched feature points. The pose estimation calculated by RGB-D information may not be accurate while the number of correct matches is too few. Thus, considering the impact of matches in SLAM system and the problem of missing position in scenes with few textures, a loose fusion method combining RGB-D with IMU is proposed in this paper. In the proposed method, we design a loose fusion strategy based on the RGB-D camera information and IMU data, which is to utilize the IMU data for position estimation when the corresponding point matches are quite few. While there are a lot of matches, the RGB-D information is still used to estimate position. The final pose would be optimized by General Graph Optimization (g2o) framework to reduce error. The experimental results show that the proposed method is better than the RGB-D camera’s method. And this method can continue working stably for indoor environment with sparse textures in the SLAM system.
This paper present video surveillance system based on double cameras that can make up the insufficiency of current video surveillance system. One camera with wide-angle lens monitors the full scene, another camera with zoom lens captures high distinguishable face image. The system detects face in the full scene image and makes sure the position of face, controls the rotatable camera moving. The system only save full scene images with moving object and face images that can occupy fewer memory space and be better suited for face retrieval and face recognition.
