Abstract

In recent years several implementations of position and movement realization via visual means have been developed. With the cost of RGB-D cameras decreasing and the availability of powerful hardware for processing images the area of visual odometry and VSLAM has become a heavily researched area. This project attempts to find an improved and cost effective environment for image processing to allow for collision avoidance and visual odometry. We attempt to create a multi-core embedded processing environment that will allow for an extremely fast and accurate estimation of position. This paper focuses on the key issue of improvement of visual odometry.
