pcfitcylinder giving different answers
8 visualizaciones (últimos 30 días)
I'm using pcfitcylinder to calculate a best fit cylinder to a point cloud. The code is giving me different solutions when I run the function for the same data. Is this a bug in the code? I need a function that will give me reliable answers.

I understand that you are getting different results each time when you run the "pcfitcylinder" command. This behavior is due to the use of MSAC, a version or RANSAC algorithm. This algorithm is used inside the estimateEssentialMatrix that's part of the helperEstimateRelativePose.m file.
RANSAC uses a random process to initialize computation of a mathematical model, in this case an essential matrix, and to remove outliers from the data. This is expected behavior. It's the nature of this approach.
For debugging purpose, you can set the random seed before the "pcfitcylinder" command to get a deterministic result using the following command:
Hope this helps!
