This week, the ARIA project was featured in an article we wrote for the SPIE Newsroom. The article provides a short overview of the project, its goals, and our current state of performance (PDF).
Ji's paper "LOAM: Lidar Odometry and Mapping in Real-time" was accepted to the Robotics Systems and Science conference (RSS). The RSS conference is one of the most well-respected robotics conference, with an acceptance rate around 8%. Congratulations Ji! Check out his cool video, too.
