There is object recognition based on regular images, but I would like to recognize objects with 3d scanned object information. I think that would make the recognition more trustful or general as the information is in 3D and not only in 2D. A 3d scanned bottle would be recognized as a bottle even if the label is not the same.

Is there any free or commercial applications that can help me with this. I was looking at opencv but I'am not sure if it could help me with this.

I have looked at the Intel RealSense SDK and it gives me object tracking, but it is based on 2d information (image), and if I turn the object to much it would not be recognized.

I hope someone can help me, where to look, or what I need.

Take a look at PCL! This is kind of out of scope for OpenCV I guess ...

Is the PCL project still active?

It is still available and widely used in the research community. So why wouldnt it be?

Latest blog entry from 2015, last release from 2013 (at least as it is stated in their website), latest related news in the website is from 2014. So they either develop the API without caring about the website, or the project is not evolving.

But I checked their forum and it is pretty active, much more than when I tried it.. I guess it is active.

PCL 1.8.0 is from June last year. So yeah, no problems there.
