Visual Place Recognition using Hashing by Olga Vysotska and Cyrill Stachniss
Given two sequences of images represented by the descriptors, the code constructs a data association graph and performs a search within this graph, so that for every query image, the code computes a matching hypothesis to an image in a database sequence as well as matching hypotheses for the previous images. The matching procedure can be performed in two modes: feature based and cost matrix based mode. The new version using an own hashing approach to quickly relocalize.
This code is related to the following publications:
