No. You cannot use standard edge detection (that is, tools designed to work on a picture of a scene) on point cloud data.

There is no such feature as now for point cloud data, but it might be considered for a future release. You can use 'pcsegdist' to segment the point cloud into clusters. You can find the details of the function here:
