Javier Martínez’s TFM

Welcome to the official web for my MOVA Master Thesis. This web will be updated in order to show my progress.

The project follows Eduardo Perdices’ work on SD-SLAM. What he developed was an SLAM algorithm that can be run in 3 differents ways: Monocular system, monocular with inertial information (IMU) called Fusion and with RGBD cameras.

The main aim that my professors and I looked forward to achieving was to detect and delete dynamic objects from a scene in order to improve the results in these circumstances. Nevertheless, due to the fact that we had an Intel RealSense D435 camera and that the RealSense D435i (which includes an inertial sensor) was just released, we decided to try to improve SD-SLAM fusion (whose results were almost identical to the monocular results) with the aim of using this new camera.

Below, you can check our progress in each of the different aspects that we are going to be tackling through the development of my project.

Intel RealSense D435 / D435i

Because we want to use these gadgets, it is necessary to know as much as possible about them. For this reason, they have been subjected to different analysis.


Due to the fact that we have been constantly working with SDSLAM, it´s normal to be continuously fixing and adding new improvements. These general improvements will be gathered in this section.

SLAM Fusion (Monocular + IMU)

The tests and improvements carried out specifically with the aim of improving the results obtained while using the SDSLAM Fusion will be added here.


In order to carry out different SD-SLAM tests, there have been selected different datasets which provide GroundTruth about the camera pose (position and orientation) in time. At the moment, we are using the following:
