Particle Filter Networks
Tensorflow implementation of Particle Filter Networks (PF-net)
Peter Karkus, David Hsu, and Wee Sun Lee: Particle filter networks with application to visual localization. Conference on Robot Learning (CoRL), 2018. https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.08975
Python 2.7, Tensorflow 1.5.0
Additional packages can be installed with
pip install -r requirements.txt
Datasets for localization experiments are available at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hSDRg7tEf2O1D_NIL8OmVdHLN2KqYFF7
The folder contains data for training, validation and testing, in tfrecords format. Download to the ./data/ folder.
A simple script is available to visualize the data:
python display_data.py ./data/valid.tfrecords
./configs/ folder contains default configuration files for training and evaluation.
Training requires the datesets to be downloaded into the ./data/ folder.
Note that training requires significant resources, and it may take several hours or days depending on the hardware.
PF-net can be trained with the default configuration using the following command:
python train.py -c ./configs/train.conf --obsmode rgb
By default, logs will be saved in a new folder under ./logs/. For help on the input arguments run
python train.py -h
A pre-trained model for RGB input is available under ./data/rgb_model_trained.chk. For evaluating a trained model run
python evaluate.py -c ./configs/eval-tracking.conf --load ./data/rgb_model_trained.chk
for the tracking task, and
python evaluate.py -c ./configs/eval-localization.conf --load ./data/rgb_model_trained.chk
for semi-global localization. The input arguments are the same as for train.py. Results will be somewhat different from the ones in the paper, because the initial uncertainty on the test trajectories uses a different random seed.
