AUTOMATED POINT CLOUD REGISTRATION
This project has been developed by Chronoptics™ Group. WaikatoLink is currently seeking expressions of interest in licensing or purchasing this technology.
Automated Point Cloud Registration
This technology provides an automated technique for coarse alignment of two or more 3D point clouds, which have rotational differences of up to 30-40 degrees. Currently coarse registration is a manual step within 3D image manipulation software. Users must manually bring point cloud image captures into rough alignment before methods such as the ICP algorithm can be applied as an automatic fine registration step. The technique will eliminate the need for manual processing and reduce image manipulation time significantly.
This registration technique can be utilised in 3D image manipulation software for the following applications:
- Product design and reverse engineering
- Rapid prototyping
- Eliminates the need for manual processing.
- Aligns point clouds with rotational differences of up to 30-40 degrees, where current technologies are limited to a maximum of 10 degrees.
- High level of computational efficiency

Our Easy Access IP portfolio provides companies with non-exclusive access to our technologies, largely for free. Royalties will only start once the use of the idea or technology has generated significant value for your company.
Express Licensing makes negotiating license terms with WaikatoLink simple and straightforward. We will provide standard licensing terms with no upfront fees and an indication of expected royalty rate ranges, all tailored to avoiding lengthy and costly legal discussions. Only a small number of areas within the license will be negotiated, such as field, territory, exclusivity and royalty rate.
Companies often find that a barrier to accessing University-generated IP is the upfront hard work that is needed in working through deal terms, even before they can assess the worth of the IP in their business. Our Try Before You Buy portfolio utilises a simple agreement that allows a company to trial an idea or technology for a fixed period of time at no charge. This will enable full assessment of whether it will work as expected, without any requirement to discuss deal terms.
