Accelerated Coordinate Encoding: Learning to Relocalize in Minutes using RGB and PosesWe are excited to present our accelerated relocalization method, which achieves high accuracy in less than five minutes. By splitting the relocalization network into a scene-agnostic feature backbone and a scene-specific prediction head, we optimize training across thousands of viewpoints simultaneously. This innovative approach ensures stable and rapid convergence, making learning-based relocalization practical for a wide range of applications. Our system reduces training time significantly, being up to 300 times faster than state-of-the-art scene coordinate regression methods while maintaining comparable accuracy.
