Learned Uncertainty Calibration for Visual Inertial Localization

by   Stephanie Tsuei, et al.

The widely-used Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) provides a straightforward recipe to estimate the mean and covariance of the state given all past measurements in a causal and recursive fashion. For a wide variety of applications, the EKF is known to produce accurate estimates of the mean and typically inaccurate estimates of the covariance. For applications in visual inertial localization, we show that inaccuracies in the covariance estimates are systematic, i.e. it is possible to learn a nonlinear map from the empirical ground truth to the estimated one. This is demonstrated on both a standard EKF in simulation and a Visual Inertial Odometry system on real-world data.
