PointNet++: Deep Hierarchical Feature Learning on Point Sets in a Metric Space
This paper builds off of ideas from PointNet (Qi et al., 2017). PointNet is a deep neural network architecture that takes a point cloud as an input and has the ability to perform classification or point semantic segmentation. PointNet differs from other point cloud processing networks by directly taking the unordered points from the point cloud as input, instead of re-representing the point cloud by voxelization or 2D images.
