Paper Abstract

This paper describes a method for computing Gaussian and mean curvature maps from range data and a modification to this method aimed at facilitating its implementation as a VLSI circuit. The curvature computations constitute a surface characterization step in range-data processing. A comparison of the performance of the original and modified algorithms on artificial range images is presented. Results of applying the modified algorithm to real range data is also presented.
