Paper Abstract

In this paper, we designed and implemented a method which can register and integrate range images obtained from different view points for building complete 3D object models. This method contains three major parts: (1) registration of range images and estimation of the parameters of rigid-body transformations, (2) integration of redundant surface patches and generation of triangulated mesh surface models, and (3) reduction of triangular mesh and texture mapping. We developed the RANSAC-based DARCES technique to estimate the parameters of the rigid-body transformations between two partially-overlapping range images without requiring initial estimates. Then, we used a circular-ICP procedure to reduce the global registration error. We also used the consensus surface algorithm combined with the marching cube method to generate triangular meshes. Finally, by texture blending and mapping, we can then reconstruct a virtual 3D model containing both geometrical and texture information.
