I am working with 3D point clouds taken from the same object at different view, and I want to align them in a global 3D point cloud. The frames have been acquired in sequence and present extended overlapping areas. Thereofre, I should be able to apply SLAM to align them. Nevertheless, it is not completely clear to me the difference between SLAM and registration, especially since they both implement ICP.

Thanks in advance for the tip. Best, anna
