Paper Abstract

An algorithm is presented for piecewise planar segmentation of 3D point clouds, which uses spatial subdivision into finite volume elements. For each volume element a local plane is fitted and these planes are grouped to detect bigger planar structures and construct a piecewise planar object model. The algorithm has a higher detection sensitivity for small object planes than a previous global plane detection methods based on RANSAC fitting and plane sweeping. Experimental results are presented for a synthetic dataset, which was used to evaluate the algorithms performance and for a real dataset, which was used to compare it to other methods.
