Abstract
Visual Place Recognition (VPR) defines the process of identifying the same place despite considerable variations in appearances and viewpoints. VPR is a major element of Spatial Artificial Intelligence, allowing robotic and intelligent augmentation platforms to perceive and understand the real world. Long-term navigation in varying environments is a challenging problem in VPR owing to the distinct appearances of places with significant variations at different times of day, months, and seasons. Recently, authors had to work on advanced deep learning techniques to address this issue. This paper presents a novel Remora Optimization with Deep Learning-Driven Visual Place Recognition for Seasonal variant Environment, named ROADL-VPRSI model. The proposed ROADL-VPRSI model employs a pretrained capsule network (CapsNet) model to learn the image descriptors. Besides, ROA is applied to adjust the hyperparameters involved in the CapsNet model, such as learning rate, batch size, and the number of hidden layers. Next, the feature vectors are transformed into binary codes to minimize the computational complexity for image matching. Finally, the Minkowski distance-based similarity measurement process is carried out to recognize the places effectively. The experimental validation of the ROADLVPRSI model is performed using a benchmark dataset, and the results are inspected under several measures. The comparative study highlighted the betterment of the ROADL-VPRSI model over recent methods.
