Fast and robust retrieval of Minkowski sums of rotating convex polyhedra in 3-space

Naama Mayer, Efi Fogel, Dan Halperin
2010 Proceedings of the 14th ACM Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling - SPM '10  
Abstract We present a novel algorithm for maintaining exact Minkowski sums of pairs of polytopes in R 3 , while one of the polytopes rotates.  ...  It efficiently handles the algebra of exact rotations about an arbitrary axis in R 3 , and it well balances between preprocessing time and space on the one hand, and query time on the other.  ...  The first approach decomposes the input polyhedra into convex pieces, computes the Minkowski sums between each pair of convex pieces, and obtains the union of their sums.  ...

2009 arXiv   pre-print
We present two exact implementations of efficient output-sensitive algorithms that compute Minkowski sums of two convex polyhedra in 3D. We do not assume general position.  ...  These software components together with exact rational-arithmetic enable a robust, efficient, and elegant implementation of the Minkowski-sum constructions and the related applications.  ...  This sentense is far short of describing the magnitude of positive influence Danny had on this research and this researcher.  ...

Three-dimensional object recognition

Paul J. Besl, Ramesh C. Jain
1985 ACM Computing Surveys  
This paper proposes a precise definition of the 3-D object recognition problem, discusses basic concepts associated with this problem, and reviews the relevant literature.  ...  A general-purpose computer vision system must be capable of recognizing threedimensional (3-D) objects.  ...  Because the extended Gaussian image uniquely determines convex polyhedra [Minkowski 18971, this technique appears to be ideal for convex object recognition without occlusion.  ...
