ODAM: Object Detection, Association, and Mapping Using Posed RGB Video
Localizing objects and estimating their extent in 3D is an important step towards high-level 3D scene understanding, which has many applications in Augmented Reality and Robotics. We present ODAM, a system for 3D Object Detection, Association, and Mapping using posed RGB videos. The proposed system relies on a deep-learning-based front-end to detect 3D objects from a given RGB frame and associate them to a global object-based map using a graph neural network (GNN). Based on these frame-to-model associations, our back-end optimizes object bounding volumes, represented as super-quadrics, under multi-view geometry constraints and the object scale prior. We validate the proposed system on ScanNet where we show a significant improvement over existing RGB-only methods.
