Orthogonal Dictionary Guided Shape Completion Network for Point Cloud

AAAI 2023  ·  Pingping Cai, Deja Scott, Xiaoguang Li, Song Wang ·

Point cloud shape completion, which aims to reconstruct the missing regions of the incomplete point clouds with plausible shapes, is an ill-posed and challenging task that benefits many downstream 3D applications. Prior approaches achieve this goal by employing a two-stage completion framework, generating a coarse yet complete seed point cloud through an encoder-decoder network, followed by refinement and upsampling. However, the encoded features suffer from information loss of the missing portion, leading to an inability of the decoder to reconstruct seed points with detailed geometric clues. To tackle this issue, we propose a novel Orthogonal Dictionary Guided Shape Completion Network (ODGNet). The proposed ODGNet consists of a Seed Generation U-Net, which leverages multi-level feature extraction and concatenation to significantly enhance the representation capability of seed points, and Orthogonal Dictionaries that can learn shape priors from training samples and thus compensate for the information loss of the missing portions during inference. Our design is simple but to the point, extensive experiment results indicate that the proposed method can reconstruct point clouds with more details and outperform previous state-of-the-art counterparts. The implementation code is available at https://github.com/corecai163/ODGNet.
