DisNet: A novel method for distance estimation from monocular camera

October 2019

tl;dr: Summary of the main idea.

Overall impression

Use bbox H, W, D (diagnal), average size of object h, w, b (breadth, along depth dimension) is good enough to regress the distance, with relative error ~10%, up to 300 meters.

This method seems much more promising than the one presented in object distance estimation.

This idea is quite similar to the more elaborate ICCV 2019 paper monoloco.
