  @brief Pseudo Code
  for each point p in cloud P
    1. get the nearest neighbors of p
    2. compute the surface normal n of p
    3. check if n is consistently oriented towards the viewpoint and flip otherwise
  The viewpoint is by default (0,0,0) and can be changed with:
    setViewPoint (float vpx, float vpy, float vpz);
    computePointNormal (const pcl::PointCloud<PointInT> &cloud, const std::vector<int> &indices, Eigen::Vector4f &plane_parameters, float &curvature);
    Where cloud is the input point cloud that contains the points, indices represents the set of k-nearest neighbors from cloud, and plane_parameters and curvature represent the output of the normal estimation, with plane_parameters holding the normal (nx, ny, nz) on the first 3 coordinates, and the fourth coordinate is D = nc . p_plane (centroid here) + p. The output surface curvature is estimated as a relationship between the eigenvalues of the covariance matrix (as presented above), as:
    * curvature = lamda_0 / (lamda_0 + lamda_1 + lamda_2)
