Point cloud data is generally obtained by application 3D scanning equipment such as lidar to obtain information of several points in space, including XYZ position information, RGB color information and intensity information, etc., which is a multi-dimensional complex data collection. Compared with 2D images, 3D point cloud data has great advantages. It can provide rich geometric, shape and scale information; and it is not easily affected by changes in illumination intensity and occlusion of other objects. Thus, the 3D point cloud provides a good understanding of the machine’s surroundings.


The annotation of 3D point cloud data can be accomplished by using various image processing techniques, including automatic segmentation, automatic classification, automatic image annotation, etc. First, the point cloud data can be divided into different categories using deep learning-based 3D image segmentation application technology for further labeling. Secondly, machine learning methods such as support vector machines and decision trees can be used to automatically classify point cloud data in order to label the data more accurately. Finally, deep learning techniques, such as convolutional neural networks, can be used to automatically label point cloud data, making the labeling more accurate and reliable.

What are the application scenarios for 3D point cloud data annotation?
