June 5, 2018

We are delighted to announce that LIDS Prof. Luca Carlone, together with his colleagues, won the IEEE Transactions on Robotics King-Sun Fu Memorial Best Paper Award for, “On-Manifold Preintegration for Real-Time Visual-Inertial Odometry” (C. Forster; L. Carlone; F. Dellaert; D. Scaramuzza, IEEE Transactions on Robotics, 33(1), 1-21, 2017). The award was presented on Thursday May 24, 2018 during the awards ceremony at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), in Brisbane, Australia.

The award recognizes the best paper published in 2017 in the IEEE Transactions on Robotics, and is given based on the paper's technical merit, originality, potential impact on the field, clarity of presentation, and practical significance for applications. Citing the award announcement: “The review panel was impressed not only with the way in which your paper drew upon sophisticated geometric methods to provide meaningful performance advantages [..] but also the immediate practical impact your work has had upon the field as borne out by the citations and widespread use of your algorithm and code in both industry and academia.”

The paper has been made available as an open access article for the next 10 years on IEEE Xplore:
