Pure Numpy Implementation of the Coherent Point Drift Algorithm.

MIT License.

Introduction

This is a pure numpy implementation of the coherent point drift `CPD <https://arxiv.org/abs/0905.2635/>`

_ algorithm by Myronenko and Song. It provides three registration methods for point clouds: 1) Scale and rigid registration; 2) Affine registration; and 3) Gaussian regularized non-rigid registration.

The CPD algorithm is a registration method for aligning two point clouds. In this method, the moving point cloud is modelled as a Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) and the fixed point cloud are treated as observations from the GMM. The optimal transformation parameters maximze the Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) estimation that the observed point cloud is drawn from the GMM.

The registration methods work for 2D and 3D point clouds. For more information, please refer to my `blog <http://siavashk.github.io/2017/05/14/coherent-point-drift/>`

Pip Install

.. code-block:: bash

pip install pycpd

Installation From Source

Clone the repository to a location, referred to as the `root`

folder. For example:

.. code-block:: bash

git clone https://github.com/siavashk/pycpd.git $HOME/pycpd

Install the package:

.. code-block:: bash

pip install .

For running sample registration examples under `examples`

, you will need `matplotlib`

to visualize the registration. This can be downloaded by running:

.. code-block:: bash

pip install matplotlib

Usage

Each registration method is contained within a single class inside the `pycpd`

subfolder. To try out the registration, you can simply run:

.. code-block:: bash

python examples/fish*{Transform}*{Dimension}.py

where `Transform`

is either `rigid`

, `affine`

or `deformable`

and `Dimension`

is either `2D`

or `3D`

. Note that examples are meant to be run from the `root`

folder.
