Feature Extraction From Point Cloud

Post by vrtroopers » Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:28 am


I am currently working on a project to use Tracking Tools and the data from rigid bodies to create a 3D model for virtual visualization.

I am currently tracking data from 70 points on an I-beam. I have many groups of points that are linear. I was wondering if there was a way to take the export file, either csv or c3d, and using a least squares regression formula, to graph these lines in a 3D.

I would like to know if there is software or code available that can determine shapes, or in my case lines, from the point cloud data I get from Tracking Tools.

I am currently working with Tracking Tools version 2.3.3 Final.

You may want to look at using an analysis engine such as Matlab or Labview to parse and graph the data. You can either import the c3d or csv files, or you can use the Tracking Tools API to directly access the system in real time.
