Iterative Hough Forest with Histogram of Control Points for 6 DoF Object Registration from Depth Images

State-of-the-art techniques for 6D object pose recovery depend on occlusion-free point clouds to accurately register objects in the 3D space. To reduce this dependency, we introduce a novel architecture called Iterative Hough forest with Histogram of Control Points that is capable of estimating occluded and cluttered objects' 6D pose given a candidate 2D bounding box. Our iterative Hough forest is learnt using patches extracted only from the positive samples. These patches are represented with Histogram of Control Points (HoCP), a scale-variant implicit volumetric description, which we derive from recently introduced Implicit B-Splines (IBS). The rich discriminative information provided by this scale-variance is leveraged during inference, where the initial pose estimation of the object is iteratively refined based on more discriminative control points by using our iterative Hough forest. We conduct experiments on several test objects of a publicly available dataset to test our architecture and to compare with the state-of-the-art.




Dataset    We used the one available in Latent-Class Hough Forests
