Three-dimensional point cloud recognition via distributions of geometric distances
Ageometric framework for the recognition of three-dimensional objects represented by point clouds is introducedin this paper. The proposed approach is based on comparing distributions of intrinsic measurements on the point cloud. In particular, intrinsic distances are exploited as signatures for representing the point clouds. The first signatureweintroduce is the histogram of pairwise diffusion distances between all points on the shape surface. These distances represent the probability of traveling from one point to another in a fixed number of random steps, the average intrinsic distances of all possible paths of a given number of steps between the two points. This signature is augmented by the histogram of the actual pairwise geodesic distances in the point cloud, the distribution of the ratio between these two distances, as well as the distribution of the number of times each point lies on the shortest paths between other points. These signatures are not only geometric but...
