Outlier Removal#

The Outlier Removal feature available on blaze-101 cameras allows you to remove pixels that differ significantly from their local environment.

An internal algorithm determines whether a pixel's depth (measured in gray values of the range map) differs too much from the depth of its neighboring pixels. Pixels identified as differing too much are called outliers and will be classed as invalid.

By enabling the OutlierRemoval parameter, these outliers will be removed from the output. The representation of outliers varies by image component:

Image Component Representation of Outliers
Range Map Set to the value specified by the Scan3dInvalidDataValue parameter
Confidence Map Set to zero
Point Cloud All 3 coordinates set to the value specified by the Scan3dInvalidDataValue parameter
