A simple method to represent three-dimensional (3-D) convex objects is proposed, in which a one-dimensional signature based on the discrete Fourier transform is used to efficiently describe the shape of a convex object. It has position-, orientation-, and scale-invariant properties. Experimental results with synthesized 3-D simple convex objects are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed simple signature representation.

    When reconstructing a scenario, it is necessary to know the structure of the elements present on the scene to have an interpretation. In this work we link 3D scenes reconstruction to evolutionary algorithms through the vision stereo theory. We consider vision stereo as a method that provides the...

    In this paper, we propose and evaluate a novel shape measure describing the extent to which a 3D polygon mesh is rectilinear. The rectilinearity measure is based on the maximum ratio of the surface area to the sum of three orthogonal projected areas of the mesh. It has the following desirable...

    This Traditional template matching methods are not appropriate for the situation of large angle rotation between two images in the online detection for industrial production. Aiming at this problem, Fourier transform algorithm was introduced to correct image rotation angle based on its rotatary...
