Paper Abstract

An algorithm to detect feature points directly from unorganized point set is proposed. The algorithm introduces local entropy change of data points on local neighbors as a detection criterion to classify points according to the likelihood that they belong to a feature by making use of the characteristic that local entropy changes sharply in regions where surface changes great. Repeatability rate is introduced as well to reflect the frequency that a sample is detected as a feature point at different local windows. Size of the local neighborhoods is used as a discrete scale parameter to control size of the feature details. Experiment results show that the multi-scale feature point detection can improve the reliability of the detection phase and makes the algorithm more robust in the presence of noise. Furthermore, non-uniformly sampled point cloud can be dealt with.
