We register close-range depth images of objects using a Swissranger sensor and apply a spring-mass model for 3D object reconstruction. The Swissranger sensor delivers depth images in real time which have, compared with other types of sensors, such as laser scanners, a lower resolution and are afflicted with larger uncertainties.
To reduce noise and remove outliers in the data, we treat the point cloud as a system of interacting masses connected via elastic forces. We investigate two models, one with and one without a surface-topology preserving interaction strength. The algorithm is applied to synthetic and real Swissranger sensor data, demonstrating
the feasibility of the approach. This method represents a preliminary step before fitting higher-level surface descriptors to the data, which will be required to define object-action complexes (OACS) for robot
