The use of range images for generic object recognition is not addressed frequently by the computer vision community. This paper presents two main contributions. First, a new object category dataset of 2D and range images of different object classes is presented. Second, a new generic object recognition model from range and 2D images is proposed. The model is able to use either appearance (2D) or range based information or a combination of both of them for multi-class object learning and

Moreover, the best performance gain by combining both appearance and range based information is 35% for single classes while the average gain over classes is 12%. E.
