Abstract: Research into dynamic 3D scene understanding has primarily focused on short-term change tracking from dense observations, while little attention has been paid to long-term changes with sparse observations. We address this gap with $MoRE^2$, a novel approach designed for multi-object relocalization and reconstruction in evolving environments. We view these environments as ``living scenes" and consider the problem of transforming scans taken at different points in time into a 3D reconstruction of the object instances, whose accuracy and completeness increase over time.At the core of our method lies a SE(3)-equivariant representation in a single encoder-decoder network, trained on synthetic data. This representation enables us to seamlessly tackle instance matching, registration, and reconstruction. We also introduce a joint optimization algorithm that facilitates the accumulation of point clouds originating from the same instance across multiple scans taken at different points in time. We validate our method on synthetic and real-world data and demonstrate state-of-the-art performance in both end-to-end performance and individual subtasks.
