Header: AVL.h
Namespace: avl
Module: FoundationBasic

Approximates points with a segment using Least Trimmed Error algorithm.

Applications: Brute-force finding of a segment that best matches a subset of the input points. Very efficient against outliers, but possibly slow for bigger subsets.


void avl::FitSegmentToPoints_LTE
	const atl::Array<avl::Point2D>& inPoints,
	atl::Optional<const avl::Range&> inRange,
	int inSeedSubsetSize,
	atl::Optional<int> inEvalSubsetSize,
	avl::Segment2D& outSegment,
	atl::Optional<atl::Array<avl::Point2D>&> outLTInliers = atl::NIL,
	atl::Optional<float&> outLTError = atl::NIL,
	int& diagIterationCount = atl::Dummy<int>()


Name Type Range Default Description
inPoints const Array<Point2D>& Input points
inRange Optional<const Range&> NIL Determines which array points take part in fitting process
inSeedSubsetSize int 2 - 10 3 Number of points in one combination for getting a sample segment
inEvalSubsetSize Optional<int> 3 - NIL Number of closest points used for evaluation of a sample segment, or Auto if seed points are to be used
outSegment Segment2D& Fitted segment
outLTInliers Optional<Array<Point2D>&> NIL Inlying points of the best LTE segment
outLTError Optional<float&> NIL The Least Trimmed Error
diagIterationCount int& Number of combinations considered

Optional Outputs

The computation of following outputs can be switched off by passing value atl::NIL to these parameters: outLTInliers, outLTError.

Error type Description
DomainError Empty array of points in FitSegmentToPoints_LTE.
DomainError Range exceeds the input point array in FitSegmentToPoints_LTE.
