Toward Automated Modeling of Floor Plans

  title={Toward Automated Modeling of Floor Plans},
  author={Brian Okorn and Xuehan Xiong and Burcu Akinci},
This paper describes an automated method for creating accurate 2D floor plan models of building interiors. Our approach takes as input a 3D point cloud, which is obtained from laser scanners positioned at multiple locations in the facility. We use a histogram of height data to detect floor and ceiling data. We then project the remaining points onto a 2D ground plane and create a histogram of point density, from which line segments corresponding to walls are extracted using a Hough transform… CONTINUE READING
