Free-Form Surface Registration using Surface Signatures
This paper introduces a new free-form surface representation scheme for the purpose of fast and accurate registration and matching. Accurate registration of surfaces is a common task in computer vision. The proposed representation scheme captures the surface curvature information, seen from certain points and produces images, called surface signatures, at these points. Matching signatures of di erent surfaces enables the recovery of the transformation parameters between these surfaces. We propose to use template matching to compare the signature images. To enable partial matching, another criterion, the overlap ratio, is used. This representation scheme can be used as a global representation of the surface as well as a local one and performs near real-time registration. We show that the signature representation can be used to match objects in 3-D scenes in the presence of clutter and occlusion. Applications presented include free-form object matching, multimodal medical volumes regist...
