3D Registration Based on Planar Feature Segmentation and Plane Fit


Article Preview

3D reconstruction is used in applications such as virtual reality, digital cinematography and urban planning .The 3D registration is the important part of 3D reconstruction, which is one of outstanding and very basic problems in computer vision. In the paper, considering that there often exist a great number of planes in scenes, we show a planar-feature-based registration method. The planar features from the range image are extracted. Then, we can compute the transformation by SVD between the two coordinate systems and achieve the registration of these two range images.
