<p><it>Abstract</it>— This paper focuses on the experimental evaluation of a range image segmentation system which partitions range data into homogeneous surface patches using estimates of the sign of the mean and Gaussian curvatures. We report the results of an extensive testing program aimed at investigating the behavior of important experimental parameters such as the probability of correct classification and the accuracy of curvature estimates, measured over variations of significant segmentation variables. Evaluation methods in computer vision are often unstructured and subjective: this paper contributes a useful example of extensive experimental assessment of surface-based range segmentation.</p>
