— Despite the rich information provided by sensors such as the Microsoft Kinect in the robotic perception setting, the problem of detecting object instances remains unsolved, even in the tabletop setting, where segmentation is greatly simplified. Existing object detection systems often focus on textured objects, for which local feature descriptors can be(More)
