The author exposes a step of the segmentation process of range images. Based upon an analogy between step edges and orientation discontinuities, it is proposed to detect surface orientation discontinuities by extrema of second directional derivatives or by zero crossings of third directional derivatives. A method is presented to compute derivatives up to the fourth order. Results obtained with these methods are shown for real range images
