In our upcoming RA-L paper, we learn robot parameters for trajectory estimation in a Gaussian variational inference setting. Our method works without ground truth, i.e. with only noisy measurements including outliers.

Can you localize a UAV by comparing its view with Google Earth images? We demonstrate accurate localizations of a multi-rotor UAV with a gimballed camera and an IMU using Google Earth to estimate the global pose on 7.1km of real world data with variable lighting conditions. Presented at ICRA2020

Selecting the best hyperparameters can be a difficult step in designing state estimators. We present a novel motion prior for continuous-time estimation and present how to train its hyperparameters using data at ICRA2020. In lidar localization experiments, we show a translation error improvement of up to 68% compared to previously used motion priors.
