Abstract

In this thesis, my colleague Ahmed El Agrod and I implemented software that allows point clouds to be edited. By moving, deleting, saving, and inserting selected objects, the point cloud should be able to be modified. This bachelor thesis mainly describes how newly added objects are automatically placed on the ground being recognized by an algorithm. Furthermore, it is described how an image inpainting algorithm was implemented to fill incomplete flat regions of point clouds with new points and associated matching colors. The ground detection was performed using the RANSAC algorithm, which computes a plane representing the ground for the scene. For the image inpainting algorithm, three-dimensional point cloud points had to be mapped to a 2D image, then use an image inpainting algorithm to fill in the missing pixels, and finally, map the 2D pixels of the inpainted image back to 3D points in the scene. An evaluation was also conducted to test both the automatic ground detection and the image inpainting algorithm regarding runtime and visual quality.
