A Point Cloud Simplification Algorithm for Mechanical Part Inspection

  title={A Point Cloud Simplification Algorithm for Mechanical Part Inspection},
  author={Hao Song and Hsi-Yung Feng},
A point cloud data set, a set of massive and dense coordinate data points sampled from the surface of a physical object, is emerging as a new representation format of 3D shapes. This is mostly attributed to recent advances in the range finding technology of high-speed 3D laser scanning. A typical laser scanned data set often contains millions of data points and this leads to significant computational challenges in processing the point cloud data for practical applications such as the high-speed… CONTINUE READING
