An Extended Evaluation of Open Source Surface Reconstruction Software for Robotic Applications
In Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems, Springer, volume Volume 77, number Issue 1, pages 149-170, 2015.
Polygonal surface reconstruction is a growing field of interest in mobile robotics. Recently, several open source surface reconstruction software packages have become publicly available. This paper presents an extensive evaluation of several of such packages, with
emphasis on their usability in robotic applications. The main aspects of the evaluation are run time, accuracy and topological correctness of the generated polygon meshes.
