|Range Data Streaming using H.264||December 01, 2014|
This software provides the tools needed to reproduce the results described in the paper "Effective Compression of Range Data Streams for Remote Robot Operations using H.264". As these scripts create and save on the disk a large amount of images, and make use of the 'x264' and 'ffmpeg' commands as external tools, the time performances are not comparable with those described in the paper. In order to get realtime performances the C libraries provided by x264 and FFmpeg have to be included in your own code. It is our intention to release a easily usable interface to use our method as a C++ library, so to allow for an effective use of the method in real-life use cases. The library will be released soon.
|Normal Iterative Closest Point (NICP) C++ Library||March 19, 2015|
This software provides useful tools to align point cloud data generated from either depth cameras or 3D laser scanners. We developed this software as a standalone open-source C++ library. The library comes with a set of instruments that can be used to easy build point cloud alignment systems like a depth camera pose tracker, and to deeply debug the behviour of the algorithm.
|EasyDepthCalibration - a C++ ros package to reduce barrel distortion on depth sensors||March 19, 2015|
Easy Depth calibration is a complete software package for calibrating any Depth sensor (in particular RGBD cameras, such as Kinext, Xtion, etc.) with a very simple and easy-to-execute procedure. The reduction of the exploited barrel distortion makes mapping procedures more robust and reliable.
Uncalibrated depth cloud, green is ground truth
Depth cloud after the calibration procedure, green is ground truth
|g2o||January 01, 2015|
New release of g2o integrating hierarchical optimization and dynamic covariance scaling
|C++ IMU-TK Library||March 30, 2015|
The C++ IMU-TK Library (Inertial Measurement Units ToolKit) provides simple functions and data structures to calibrate MEMS-based inertial navigation units, and to process and display IMU data.
|Thin-Drivers||January 01, 2016|
A collection of light-weight ROS drivers developed within/fior ROVINA
|Semantic Segmentation ROS node||September 19, 2016|
The semantic segmentation ros node used in ROVINA. This is the repository released on github. It depends on the UNIROMA fps mapper which is not part of that repository.
|ROVINA Code Base||September 19, 2016|
Release of the ROVINA Code Base
|FPS Mapper||September 25, 2016|
FPS Mapper - the Fast Pose Solver Mapping Suite is the heart of the Kinect/Xtion-based ROVINA mapping system It is a thin package for mapping with multiple depth sensors used on the ROVINA robot.
