© 2014 IEEE. Based on the latest achievements in computer vision and RGB-D SLAM, a practical way for dense moving object segmentation and thus a new framework for robust dense RGB-D SLAM in challenging dynamic scenarios is put forward. As the state-of-the-art method in RGB-D SLAM, dense SLAM is very robust when there are motion blur or featureless regions, while most of those sparse feature-based methods could not handle them. However, it is very susceptible to dynamic elements in the scenarios. To enhance its robustness in dynamic scenarios, we propose to combine dense moving object segmentation with dense SLAM. Since the object segmentation results from the latest available algorithm in computer vision are not satisfactory, we propose some effective measures to improve upon them so that better results can be achieved. After dense segmentation of dynamic objects, dense SLAM can be employed to estimate the camera poses. Quantitative results from the available challenging benchmark dataset have proved the effectiveness of our method.
