3D Object Classification, Visual Search from RGB-D Data

Applied Mathematics and Computational Mechanics for Smart Applications


In this chapter, we consider the problem of creating a system for processing 3D models obtained using RGB-D sensors for the purpose of semiautomatic selection and classification of objects and their auto-completion based on visual search. We have proposed several heuristic preprocessing algorithms for selecting an object of interest on a scan that contains noise and extraneous objects. To implement the visual search algorithm, we obtained a modification of the ray casting 3D-shape feature extraction algorithm. To solve the classification problem, the possibility of using deep learning architectures based on convolution mechanisms on graphs is investigated. The information about the object class obtained during the classification stage is used for faster and more accurate auto-completion. The resulting system has been tested on real data.
