    Project mention: What algorithms should I look at if I'm interested in SLAM-like navigation, but with 3-D map foreknowledge? | /r/computervision | 2023-03-26

    You can try hierarchical localization, it's pretty memory efficient since it only brings up relevant point clouds instead of the entire mapped pointed when you're computing poses.

  • BlenderProc

  • ailia-models

    The collection of pre-trained, state-of-the-art AI models for ailia SDK

    Project mention: 10$ Full Body Tracking! I'm proud to release ToucanTrack (in Beta!). Get decent FBT with the power of 2 PS3 Eye Cameras and AI! | /r/VRchat | 2023-02-20

    If you're looking for the differences in terms of how inference is done, I recommend you take a look at MediaPipe's source code. MediaPipe doesn't use raw code, but uses a "graph" instead (eg. pose_landmark_cpu.pbtxt), which can be visualised using MediaPipe Viz. I also used axinc-ai/ailia-models as the base (preprocessing, inference, postprocessing, etc...) which I further built upon (keypoint refinement, roi from keypoints, filtering / smoothing, etc...)
