Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Multimodal Learning-based Visual Localization in GPS-denied Environments This project proposes to develop a new learning-based visual localization technique for user navigation in GPS-denied environments. Many Army missions require accurate tracking and estimating of users’ 6DoF pose (position and orientation) operated in environments where there is no or very weak GPS signals. Traditional techniques have many limitations in terms of robustness, accuracy drift, and scalability. The goal of this research is to develop new technique that employ advanced visual perception and machine learning technologies for visual localization from multimodal sensing data. The outcome of the project will be: software of developed new algorithms for demonstration, and an article on developed new technique for publication.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
