3d object recognition by geometric hashing for robotics applications

Hozatlı, Aykut
The main aim of 3D Object recognition is to recognize objects under translation and rotation. Geometric Hashing is one of the methods which represents a rotation and translation invariant approach and provides indexing of structural features of the objects in an efficient way. In this thesis, Geometric Hashing is used to store the geometric relationship between discriminative surface properties which are based on surface curvature. In this thesis surface is represented by shape index and splash where shape index defines particular shaped surfaces and splash introduces topological information. The method is tested on 3D object databases and compared with other methods in the literature.
