Geometry of 3D Environments and Sum of Squares Polynomials

22 Nov 2016Amir Ali AhmadiGeorgina HallAmeesh MakadiaVikas Sindhwani

Motivated by applications in robotics and computer vision, we study problems related to spatial reasoning of a 3D environment using sublevel sets of polynomials. These include: tightly containing a cloud of points (e.g., representing an obstacle) with convex or nearly-convex basic semialgebraic sets, computation of Euclidean distances between two such sets, separation of two convex basic semalgebraic sets that overlap, and tight containment of the union of several basic semialgebraic sets with a single convex one...
