Class: pointCloud

Find points within ROI


indices = findPointsInROI(ptCloud,roi)


indices = findPointsInROI(ptCloud,roi) returns the points within a region of interest.

Input Arguments

expand all

Point cloud, specified as a pointCloud object.

Region of interest, specified as a 3-by-2 matrix. The format defining the region of interest cuboid matrix is [xmin, xmax; ymin, ymax; zmin, zmax].

Output Arguments

expand all

Linear indices to stored points, returned as a column vector. The indices vector contains the stored points in the ptCloud object.


expand all

Create a point cloud object with randomly generated points.

ptCloudA = pointCloud(100*rand(1000,3,'single'));

Define a cuboid.

roi = [0,50;0,inf;0,inf];

Find all the points within the cuboid.

indices = findPointsInROI(ptCloudA, roi);
ptCloudB = select(ptCloudA,indices);

Display points within the ROI.
