Deformable models approach for range image segmentation

Khaldi Amine, Merouani Hayet Farida


In this work, we propose two new approaches for range image segmentation (level set and adaptive contour) for planar and curved surface scenes, then, the segmentation results obtained are compared with the results of our previous work [1]. Despite the good experimental results on the simple objects, we note that the adaptive and classical snake methods have a few limitations and cannot detect discontinuities in curvatures and some items do not always converge, however, the level set method is very efficient for segmenting range images with curvature and with complex forms.
