Paper Abstract

This paper describes a method for automatic registration of real-time multi-view range images obtained under the condition free from any artificial restriction. Firstly, we derive affine transformation matrix, which gives mutual position relationship between two consecutive range images, from automatically extracted four corresponding points between them. Then, concatenating thus derived affine transformation matrices in order, we make registration all range images by transforming them to one coordinate system of arbitrary chosen range image. In extracting four corresponding points automatically, we utilize four cross points between four real and/or virtual planes extracted from extended gaussian-image of the target. As a result, we could reduce error and computational cost and realize automatic registration.
