Abstract: Sensor placement for 3-D modeling is a
growing area of computer vision and robotics. The
objective of a sensor placement system is to make task-
directed decisions for optimal pose selection. We propose
a Next Best View (NBV) solution to the sensor placement
problem. Our algorithm computes the next best view by
optimizing an objective function that measures the
quantity of unknown information in each of a group of
potential viewpoints. The potential views are either placed
uniformly around the object or are calculated from the
surface normals of the occupancy grid model. To initiate
the collection of new data, the optimal pose is selected
