A GPS-aided Omnidirectional Visual-Inertial State Estimator in Ubiquitous Environments
We developed a GPS-aided omnidirectional visual-inertial state estimator capable of operating in ubiquitous environments and platforms. The proposed odometry achieves drift ratio less than 0.5% in 1200 m length outdoors campus road in overexposure conditions and 0.65% in open water surface, without a loop closure, compared with a centimeter accuracy GPS reference.
