This chapter builds on what you learned about point clouds and the Kinect to explore more advanced 3-D concepts. We will extend our methods to handle more than one image at the time. There are many things we could do with a point cloud, and in this chapter, we will explore three areas:
Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
KeywordsPoint Cloud Depth Image Rigid Transformation Feature Position Nonlinear Minimization
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
