Unfortunately, no on the ETA. It’s a side project that isn’t a priority right now.
I’m curious, I saw another talk at IROS using distance maps for localization and it was clearly extremely susceptible to moving obstacles in the mapping phase since the distance function features immediately change if anything moves in free space. I was wondering if your approach has that same issue - that could explain what I’m seeing if when things move in areas its mapping that really messes up feature matching.
I work in (academic/industrial) robotic projects where localization and mapping is a topic of interest. Therefore, there is an interest in maintaining LaMa.
Good to know. I’d also be curious to chat more offline about what your future plans look like, but I don’t want to derail this discussion.
Well the PF things would immediately get thrown out for large scale, I’m more interested in the optimization things for large scale.
