Efficient Stereo Depth Estimation for Pseudo LiDAR: A Self-Supervised Approach Based on Multi-Input ResNet Encoder

by   Sabir Hossain, et al.

Perception and localization are essential for autonomous delivery vehicles, mostly estimated from 3D LiDAR sensors due to their precise distance measurement capability. This paper presents a strategy to obtain the real-time pseudo point cloud instead of the laser sensor from the image sensor. We propose an approach to use different depth estimators to obtain pseudo point clouds like LiDAR to obtain better performance. Moreover, the training and validating strategy of the depth estimator has adopted stereo imagery data to estimate more accurate depth estimation as well as point cloud results. Our approach to generating depth maps outperforms on KITTI benchmark while yielding point clouds significantly faster than other approaches.
