Estimating the relative 6D pose of an object, that is, its 3 rotations and 3 translations with respect to the camera from a single image is crucial in many applications.
Most traditional methods address this problem by first detecting keypoints in the input image, then establishing 3D-to-2D correspondences, and finally running a Perspective-n-Point algorithm. Unfortunately, this often fails in the presence of severe occlusions and cluttered backgrounds.
To improve robustness, we have several end-to-end trainable networks depicted that yield reliable and scale-insensitive 6D poses. These will be tested in harsh spatial conditions in the context of the ClearSpace-1 project, whose chaser satellite will be launched to retrieve and de-orbit a non-operational satellite in 2025.
