Detailed Description

template<typename PointT>
class pcl::RadiusOutlierRemoval< PointT >

RadiusOutlierRemoval filters points in a cloud based on the number of neighbors they have.

Iterates through the entire input once, and for each point, retrieves the number of neighbors within a certain radius. The point will be considered an outlier if it has too few neighbors, as determined by setMinNeighborsInRadius(). The radius can be changed using setRadiusSearch().
The neighbors found for each query point will be found amongst ALL points of setInputCloud(), not just those indexed by setIndices(). The setIndices() method only indexes the points that will be iterated through as search query points.

Usage example:

pcl::RadiusOutlierRemoval<PointType> rorfilter (true); // Initializing with true will allow us to extract the removed indices
rorfilter.setInputCloud (cloud_in);
rorfilter.setRadiusSearch (0.1);
rorfilter.setMinNeighborsInRadius (5);
rorfilter.setNegative (true);
rorfilter.filter (*cloud_out);
// The resulting cloud_out contains all points of cloud_in that have 4 or less neighbors within the 0.1 search radius
indices_rem = rorfilter.getRemovedIndices ();
// The indices_rem array indexes all points of cloud_in that have 5 or more neighbors within the 0.1 search radius

template<typename PointT>
int pcl::RadiusOutlierRemoval< PointT >::getMinNeighborsInRadius ( )
inline

Get the number of neighbors that need to be present in order to be classified as an inlier.

The number of points within setRadiusSearch() from the query point will need to be equal or greater than this number in order to be classified as an inlier point (i.e. will not be filtered).

Returns
The minimum number of neighbors (default = 1).

template<typename PointT>
double pcl::RadiusOutlierRemoval< PointT >::getRadiusSearch ( )
inline

Get the radius of the sphere that will determine which points are neighbors.

The number of points within this distance from the query point will need to be equal or greater than setMinNeighborsInRadius() in order to be classified as an inlier point (i.e. will not be filtered).

Returns
The radius of the sphere for nearest neighbor searching.
