Object Detection on Street View Images: from Panoramas to Geotags

Many applications such as autonomous navigation, urban planning and asset monitoring, rely on the availability of accurate information about objects and their geolocations. In our talk we propose to automatically detect and compute the GPS coordinates of recurring stationary objects of interest using street view imagery (Google Street View, Bing Streetside, Mapillary, etc.). The designed computer vision pipeline relies on fully convolutional neural networks to detect objects and a triangulation-based Markov Random Field model to geotag objects. The experiments report GPS accuracies within 2 meters, which is comparable with the precision of single-frequency GPS receivers.
