In this paper, we present a novel 3D descriptor that bridges the gap between global and local approaches. While local descriptors proved to be a more attractive choice for object recognition within cluttered scenes, they remain less discriminating exactly due to the limited scope of the local neighborhood. On the other hand, global descriptors can better capture relationships between distant points, but are generally affected by occlusions and clutter. So, we propose the Local-to-Global… CONTINUE READING
