This week in Wayfair Data Science’s explainer series, we’re discussing object pose estimation, an important problem in robotics and augmented reality (AR) applications. In robotics, when given a 3D model of an object a mobile robot must be able to localize it in space in order to manipulate it. This localization process is also central to our AR work at Wayfair. On the Wayfair app, you can explore how our products look in your room using AR. The ability to estimate the pose of the selected item while you are moving your smartphone around your room is essential to providing the best AR experience. In this video, Wayfair data science manager Esra Cansizoglu explains how we solve this problem using perspective-n-point algorithm in a RANSAC framework.
