This work in collaboration with Denis Chekhlov, Mark Pupilli and Andrew Calway, uses SIFT-like descriptors within a coherent top-down framework. The resulting system provides superior performance over previous methods in terms of robustness to erratic motion, camera shake, and the ability to recover from periods of measurement loss.
