dc.descriptionThis article presents the Radial Base Functions (RBFs) as a functional interpolation method for implicit surface reconstruction from points cloud.  These methods allow not only to improve inaccuracies resulting from scanners, but also possible discontinuities that occur in the point clouds.  The complexity of three-dimensional objects makes reconstruction difficult since devices such as scanners do not always faithfully reproduce the objects, which can lead to information gaps or an incomplete reconstruction. Interpolation methods based on RBFs allow to correct these errors.  Three-dimensional surface reconstruction has wide applications in biomedical engineering, in the design of industrial parts, among others.  With the algorithm, we developed we have been able to make reconstructions of both explicit and implicit functions, in two and three dimensions.Keywords:  Radial Basis Functions, Three-dimensional reconstruction, Interpolation Methods.en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017)
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
