Abstract

The Iterative Closest Point algorithm is a widely used approach to aligning the geometry between two 3 dimensional objects. The capability of aligning two geometries in real time on low-cost hardware will enable the creation of new applications in Computer Vision and Graphics. The execution time of many modern approaches are dominated by either the k nearest neighbor search (kNN) or the point alignment phase. This work presents an accelerated alignment variant which utilizes parallelization on a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) of multiple kNN approaches augmented with a novel Delaunay Traversal to achieve real time estimates.
