A Survey of Rigid 3D Pointcloud Registration Algorithms

  title={A Survey of Rigid 3D Pointcloud Registration Algorithms},
  author={Ben Bellekens and Vincent Spruyt and Rafael Berkvens and Maarten Weyn},
Geometric alignment of 3D pointclouds, obtained using a depth sensor such as a time-of-flight camera, is a challenging task with important applications in robotics and computer vision. Due to the recent advent of cheap depth sensing devices, many different 3D registration algorithms have been proposed in literature, focussing on different domains such as localization and mapping or image registration. In this survey paper, we review the state-of-the-art registration algorithms and discuss their…

A novel approach for solving SLAM using 3D laser range scans using a novel explicit loop closing heuristic (ELCH), which dissociates the last scan of a sequence of acquired scans, reassociates it to the map, built so far by scan registration, and distributes the difference in the pose error over the SLAM graph.
