Real time 3D Shape Recognition Using Image Moment-Based Features


There is outstanding capability which carries out form recognition of the object at three dimensions in man's eyes, and an object can be spatially understood and recognized from a picture also to the object which has any complicated form. When taking the action corresponding to an object irrespective of contact and un-contacting, we can say that this capability is indispensable. The purpose of this research applies this capability to a robot.

In this presentation, a 3D shape recognition algorithm using a high-speed vision and an active lightning device is proposed. In this algorithm, by giving strong point light to a target, an elliptical shading pattern is produced. Using a high-speed vision the moment parameters of the shading pattern is observed at a rate of 1 kHz, and the target surface is reconstructed from the moment parameters.
