In their paper, Prof. Cremers et al. present the results of their research on a method called TANDEM for highly accurate tracking and 3D environment reconstruction using deep learning with a monocular camera. TANDEM outperforms other conventional and deep learning-based monocular visual odometry (VO) tracking methods, and has also proven its performance in reconstructing robust and highly accurate 3D maps.

Artisense continues to promote research and development of cutting-edge technologies backed by academic research, led by Prof. Cremers. Also, Kudan group as a whole, as leading companies in the computer vision industry, will strive to continuously establish competitive advantages in SLAM technology on a global scale and accelerate social implementation.
