Abstract
We present an approach to recognition of complex objects in cluttered 3-D scenes that does not require feature extraction or segmentation. Our object representation comprises descriptive images associated with each oriented point on the surface of an object. Using a single point basis constructed from an oriented point, the position of other points on the surface of the object can be described by two parameters. The accumulation of these parameters for many points on the surface of the object results in an image at each oriented point. These images, localized descriptions of the global shape of the object, are invariant to rigid transformations. Through correlation of images, point correspondences between a model and scene data are established and then grouped using geometric consistency. The effectiveness of our algorithm is demonstrated with results showing recognition of complex objects in cluttered scenes with occlusion.
