We are pleased to release the source code for our dense monocular odometry
algorithm, called DPPTAM.
It is described in our IROS 2015 paper:

[1] Alejo Concha, Javier Civera. DPPTAM: Dense Piecewise Planar Tracking
and Mapping from a Monocular Sequence. In IEEE/RSJ International Conference
on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS15), Hamburg, Germany, 2015

DPPTAM is a direct monocular odometry algorithm that estimates a dense
reconstruction of a scene in real-time on a CPU. Highly textured image
areas are mapped using standard direct mapping techniques, that minimize
the photometric error across different views. We make the assumption that
homogeneous-color regions belong to approximately planar areas.

The source code is released under GPLv3 license. For details please view
the licence file in the source.
