Self-supervised Monocular Depth Estimation with Structure Regularities

We offer a master (or guided research) topic in the field of autonomous driving, which aims at providing accurate dense depth maps in a self-supervised manner.


Self-supervised networks have achieved impressive performance in monocular depth prediction, but those depth maps cannot capture some small but important information like road-bump. To address this issue, we will propose a new framework generating more useful information rather than a rough depth map for the autonomous driving task.
