Direct RGB-D SLAM

Contact: Christian Kerl, Robert Maier, Jörg Stückler.

Our RGB-D SLAM system builds upon our Direct RGB-D Odometry (see below). It extends the odometry approach to include a geometric error term and perform frame-to-keyframe matching. Each new keyframe is inserted into a pose graph. Additionally we search for loop closures to older keyframes. These loop closures provide additional constraints for the pose graph. The graph is incrementally optimized using the g2o framework. The output of the SLAM system are metrically consistent poses for all frame.

Direct RGB-D Odometry

In contrast to feature-based algorithms, the approach uses all pixels of two consecutive RGB-D images to estimate the camera motion. The implementation runs in realtime on a recent CPU.
