We present a robust learning based instance recognition framework from single view point clouds. Our framework is able to handle real-world instance recognition challenges, i.e, clutter, similar looking distractors and occlusion. Recent algorithms have separately tried to address the problem of clutter [9] and occlusion [16] but fail when these challenges are combined. In comparison we handle all challenges within a single framework. Our framework uses a soft label Random Forest [5] to learn discriminative shape features of an object and use them to classify both its location and pose. We propose a novel iterative training scheme for forests which maximizes the margin between classes to improve recognition accuracy, as compared to a conventional training procedure. The learnt forest outperforms template matching, DPM [7] in presence of similar looking distractors. Using occlusion information, computed from the depth data, the forest learns to emphasize the shape features from the visible regions thus making it robust to occlusion. We benchmark our system with the state-of-the-art recognition systems [9,7] in challenging scenes drawn from the largest publicly available dataset. To complement the lack of occlusion tests in this dataset, we introduce our Desk3D dataset and demonstrate that our algorithm outperforms other methods in all settings. © 2014 Springer International Publishing.
