“Hierarchical Place Recognition for Topological Mapping”
has been accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Robotics journal, handled by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. This paper describes a hierarchical solution for vision-based topological mapping, achieving higher performance than state of the art solutions regarding visual loop closure capabilities, mapping and computational complexity. This work is part of the research performed by Emilio Garcia-Fidalgo as his PhD Thesis.
