Abstract: Category-level 6D pose estimation can be better generalized to unseen objects in a category compared with instancelevel 6D pose estimation. However, existing category-level 6D pose estimation methods usually require supervised training with a sufficient number of 6D pose annotations of objects which makes them difficult to be applied in real scenarios. To address this problem, we propose a self-supervised framework for category-level 6D pose estimation in this paper.We leverage DeepSDF as a 3D object representation and design several novel loss functions based on DeepSDF to help the self-supervised model predict unseen object poses without any 6D object pose labels and explicit 3D models in real scenarios.Experiments demonstrate that our method achieves comparable performance with the state-of-the-art fully supervised methods on the category-level NOCS benchmark.
