We present a method for synchronizing three-dimensional (3D) point cloud from 3D scene with estimation using a 3D Lidar and an RGB camera. These 3D points sensed by the 3D Lidar are not captured at the same time, which makes it difficult to measure the correct shape of the object in a dynamic scene. In our method, we generate synchronized 3D points at arbitrary times using linear interpolation in four-dimensional space, time and space. For interpolating the 3D point, we obtain corresponding 3D point matching with the pixel value captured by the RGB camera in a continuous frame. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented method by depicting a synchronized 3D point cloud that is correctly shaped.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
