Abstract

In order to make explorations in 3D environments, unmanned aircraft systems (UAVs) are used, which require technologies capable of perceiving the environment to map and estimate the location of objects that could cause accidents and collisions. RGB-D sensors help determine the depth, but adding more accessories to the UAVs requires more considerable energy, causing higher dimensions. Due to measurements, it is not elementary to use UAV in indoor environments. UAVs have a conventional camera, allowing images to be capture for mapping 3D indoor environments. The main advantage of the processing of images is Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) because these networks can generate realistic images from a source of the noise. GAN has demonstrated the capability to create images from a set of samples. Therefore, we propose to use GAN to estimate the depth and segmentation of a real image from a virtual environment representation to enrich a conventional camera that allows estimating depth. However, the problem is caused by three domains of samples. Thus, basic GAN architecture is not enough. For this reason, we propose Double GAN architecture with noise reduction to represent an RGB-D sensor with a few samples of a real scenario. Besides, the comparison of performance with a physical RGB-D sensor such as sensor Kinect, allowing to create low-cost visual depth perception.
