Visual Crowdsourcing for Smart Mobility
Visual crowdsourcing offers an inexpensive method to collect visual data for implementing tasks, such as 3D mapping and place detection, thanks to the prevalence of cameras. In this talk, we will present two application scenarios, including indoor mapping and navigation and collaborative driving. We will also discuss the challenges related to efficient data collection and latency-critical data processing.
