Clustering Method of 3D Point Cloud of Muck-Pile Based on Connectivity of Adjacent Surface
MetadataShow full item record
This paper proposes a method to measure the fragmentation distribution of a pile of rocks (muck-pile) using image-based 3D reconstruction. One of the most important aspects of mine-blasting is appropriate rock fragmentation to optimize the cost of the blasting operation. The conventional method of measuring fragmentation distribution is based on 2D image processing including segmentation of muck-pile regions into rock clusters. However, in the 2D method, the measurement accuracy is limited. To accurately measure rock fragmentation distribution, we reconstructed a 3D model of a muck-pile from multi-view images and segment the 3D model based on rock-features such as color, normal vector, distance and adjacent angles of surface planes. As a result, the size of each rock was calculated by fitting a bounding box. Based on experimental evaluations, it was confirmed that the accuracy of the proposed method is higher than that of previous methods.

A Conceptual Study for Development of 3D Rock Fragmentation Analysis System with Stereo-photogrammetry TechnologiesDegawa, R.; Jang, Hyong Doo; Kawamura, Y.; Kitahara, I.; Topal, E.; Endo, Y. (2016)One of the most important aspects of mine blasting is accomplishing proper rock fragmentation to optimise not only blasting operation itself but also the entire mine to mill processes. As improper fragmentations, i.e., ...
