In this paper we present a novel edge detection algorithm for range images based on a scan line approximation technique. Compared to the known methods in the literature, our algorithm has a number of advantages. It provides edge strength measures that have a straightforward geometric interpretation and supports a classification of edge points into several subtypes. We give a definition of optimal edge detectors and compare our algorithm to this theoretical model. We have carried out extensive… CONTINUE READING
