Dr Ehsan is currently interested in the problem of visual place recognition (VPR) which may be described as a process of recognising a previously visited place using visual information, often under varying appearance conditions and viewpoint changes, and with computational constraints. VPR is related to the concepts of localisation, loop closure, image retrieval and is a critical component of many autonomous navigation systems ranging from autonomous vehicles to drones and computer vision systems. While the concept of place recognition has been around for many years, VPR research has grown rapidly as a field over the past decade due to improving camera hardware and its potential for deep learning-based techniques, and has become a widely studied topic in both the computer vision and robotics communities.
