Abstract: Visual place recognition has become a challenging and attractive field in computer vision and robotics because it involves many methods to recognize the appearance of natural scenes that may be different. In autonomous and unmanned aerial vehicles, visual location recognition helps to detect actual destinations and locations In order to match standard features from different angles of a scene, we propose a global feature matching method, which is separate from the current popular local feature matching method. We build attention maps from two dimensions to refine the calculation methods of residuals in VLAD, channel and spatial, and get better results than the original NetVLAD model. In addition, self-driving cars require precise, light and comfortable shapes to operate in order to achieve their portability. Therefore, we propose a triple distillation method by using the weakly supervised triple ordering loss as the standard in global feature matching. It uses the student network to learn from the teacher network from three directions to reduce the huge model (teacher model we Combines two loss method functions, the first uses the results of the teacher model to extract the positive results and stay away from the negative results, and the other method fits the vector to the point). Combining these two methods makes our method better than the original lightweight model. This distillation method of global feature matching can reduce the difference between the results of the learning model and the teaching model, and can also be used to enhance the generalization ability.
