© 2014 IEEE. Object registration has been widely discussed with the development of various range sensing technologies. In most work, however, the point clouds of reference and target are generated by the same technology, such as a Kinect range camera, LiDAR sensor, or Structure from Motion technique. Cases in which reference and target point clouds are generated by different technologies are rarely discussed. Due to the significant differences across various point cloud data in terms of point cloud density, sensing noise, scale, occlusion etc., object registration between such different point clouds becomes extremely difficult. In this study, we address for the first time an even more challenging case in which the differently-sourced point clouds are acquired from a real street view. One is generated on the basis of an image sequence through the SfM process, and the other is produced directly by the Li-DAR system. We propose a two-stage matching and registration algorithm to achieve object registration between these two different point clouds. The experiments are based on real building object point cloud data and demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed solution. The newly proposed solution can be further developed to contribute to several related applications, such as Location Based Service.
