Paper Abstract

A new technique for recognizing partially occluded or incomplete 2-D representations of man made objects is presented here. Recognition is performed without regard for orientation, position, and scale of the objects. This technique based on Normalized Interval Vertex Descriptors (NIVD) a representation derived from the physical characteristic of an object (vertices and sides) that is easy to obtain, especially for polygon like shapes. NIVD shape representation is a periodic scale, rotation and translation invariant function of the contour of the object. Although global in nature, NIVDs, through a subtemplate matching and a renormalization process of the matching sections, can be used for partial shape recognition. Objects on the scene are identified as belonging to a given class by finding the largest partial match of the object representation and a previously acquired clean representation of the class model. Experimental results of this technique are also included.
