Hypothesis Generation (HG) and Hypothesis Verification (HV) play an important role in 3D objection recognition. However, performing 3D object recognition in cluttered scenes using HG and HV still remains a largely unsolved problem. High False Positive (FP) in HG and HV stages are witnessed due to clutter and occlusion, which will further affect the final accuracy of recognition. To address these problems, we propose a novel Hough-space-based HG approach for extracting hypotheses. Differently from the existing methods, our approach is based on a Hough space which adopts a self-adapted measure to generate hypotheses. Based on this, a novel HV-based method is proposed to verify the hypotheses obtained from HG procedures. The proposed method is evaluated on four public benchmark datasets to verify its performance. Experiments show that our approach outperforms state-of-the-art methods, and obtains a higher recognition rate without sacrificing precision both at high FP rates and high occlusion rates.
