Extract RGB values from point cloud data
rgb = readRGB(
[r g b] values from all points in the
pcloud, and returns them as
an n-by-3 of n 3-D point coordinates. If the
point cloud does not contain the RGB field, this function displays an error. To
preserve the structure of the point cloud data, see Preserving Point Cloud Structure.
Load sample ROS messages including a ROS point cloud message,
Read the RGB values from the point cloud.
rgb = readRGB(ptcloud);
rgb— List of RGB values from point cloud
List of RGB values from point cloud, returned as a matrix. By
default, this is an n-by-3 matrix. If the point
cloud object being read has the
set to true, the points are returned as an h-by-w-by-3
matrix. For more information, see Preserving Point Cloud Structure.
Point cloud data can be organized in either 1-D lists or in 2-D image styles. 2-D image styles
usually come from depth sensors or stereo cameras. The input
PointCloud2 object contains a
property that is either
Suppose that you set the property to
pcloud.PreserveStructureOnRead = true;
Now calling any read functions (
readField) preserves the organizational
structure of the point cloud. When you preserve the structure, the output matrices are
of size m-by-n-by-d, where
m is the height, n is the width, and
d is the number of return values for each point. Otherwise, all
points are returned as an x-by-d list. This
structure can be preserved only if the point cloud is organized.
