Maximum point search distance

The maximum distance to search from the target to the reference point cloud for a match

Child Scan

The subject scan

Parent Scan

The fixed reference scan

Mean Point-to-Plane Error

The average (mean) rms error calculated from each point in the child to the best fit plane in the parent, limited by the search threshold

Mean Point-to-Point Error

The average (mean) rms error calculated from each point in the child to the closest point in the parent, limited by the search threshold

Scan-to-Scan distance

The distance between scan positions

Overlap fraction

RMS point-to-plane distance

The root mean square error calculated from each point in the child to the best fit plane in the parent, limited by the search threshold

RMS point-to-point distance

The root mean square error calculated from each point in the child to the closest point in the parent, limited by the search threshold

Number of Overlapping Points

The number of points in the child that overlap with the parent with overlap defined by the maximum search distance
