Citation: Srikumar Ramalingam, Sofien Bouaziz, Peter Sturm, Matthew Brand In IEEE 12th International Conference on Computer Vision Workshops (ICCV Workshops), 2009.

Summary of paper:
The paper describes a novel method to accurately estimate the global position of a moving car using an omnidirectional camera and a 3D city models. The camera is oriented upwards to capture images of the immediate skyline, which is generally unique and serves as a fingerprint for a specific location in a city. The goal is to estimate global position by matching skylines extracted from omni-directional images to skyline segments from coarse 3D city models.

He is a member of the BITS Networked Systems Laboratory where he works under the guidance of his advisor Dr. Jakob Eriksson and co-advisor Dr. Peter Nelson.
