A Dynamical Perspective on Point Cloud Registration

May 8, 2020

I’d like to share an interesting dynamical perspective on point cloud registration. The process of registering two point clouds is considered as a dynamical system, where one dynamic point cloud moves towards the other static point cloud under forces and torques induced by virtual springs and damping. Lyapunov theory is adopted to analyze the convergence of point cloud registration and a few interesting findings appear. Check out the article here: https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.03190
