Event-based and frame-based binocular visual odometry system

My name is Rui Hu, from China. I am a visiting PhD student at the Computer Vision Lab (CVL), Institute of Visual Computing & Human-Centered Technology, TU Wien, Austria.
My research focus is on Event Camera based Visual Odometry, mainly for robot localization. Unlike conventional frame cameras that output images based on a fixed frame rate, each pixel of an event camera independently detects relative changes in luminosity and outputs event data asynchronously. It has the advantage of high temporal accuracy, high pixel bandwidth, and responds only to dynamic objects.
In order to adapt to challenging environments with different conditions, I currently work on event camera and traditional frame camera binocular visual odometry. Event-frame visual odometry includes heterogeneous camera calibration techniques and the effect on localization due to vision loss in both high and low speed scenarios.
