This technology provides an automated technique for coarse alignment of two or more 3D point clouds, which have rotational differences of up to 30-40 degrees. Currently coarse registration is a manual step within 3D image manipulation software. Users must manually bring point cloud image captures into rough alignment before methods such as the ICP algorithm can be applied as an automatic fine registration step. The Coarse Range Image Registration technique will eliminate the need for manual processing and reduce image manipulation time significantly.
