Dear all

we are happy to release the binaries of SVO 2.0, the latest update of 
our Semi-direct Visual Odometry pipeline (originally open sourced in 2014).

As its predecessor, SVO 2.0 runs up to 400 fps on an Intel i7 or up to 
100 on a smartphone processor (e.g., Odroid) while taking less than half 
a CPU core! Compared to the original open source implementation 
(ICRA'14), SVO 2.0 (TRO'17) adds IMU priors, edgelets, extension to wide 
angle cameras (fisheye and catadioptric) as well to stereo camera 
systems. Comparison of SVO 2.0 with respect to other state of the art VO 
algorithms or semi-dense and dense approaches can be found in the 
reference paper (TRO17).

SVO has been used in our lab for the past 4 years as the main 
vision-based state-estimation engine of all our vision-based autonomous 
drone projects, but it has also been used in other projects, including 
automotive and mobile devices (AR/VR).

Binaries, documentation, reference papers, and videos of all use cases 
of SVO 2.0 can be found here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__rpg.ifi.uzh.ch_svo2.html&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=d7d90WKwEPtUvcrkQWm1SnufRNOwTkNI_WR9NJ2bnT4&s=NqnpWkQRybCtEBxrUVyzhucVfL71jsuMosAmOETmlIM&e=

I hope you find it useful!

Davide Scaramuzza, on behalf of all co-authors and main contributors of 
SVO 2.0
