Paper Abstract

Feature extraction and object representation form the basis of a model based object recognition system. This paper presents a new technique for invariant representation of object geometry. A massively parallel line feature extractor is applied to an edge extracted image to detect the object features. A feature tree representation of the object geometry is generated. The feature tree thus becomes a complete representation of the objects in the image. A line based object representation technique has been chosen over the point based technique to circumvent the uncertainty associated with point representation. The geometric invariants of the lines are computed using a combination of line features. An invariant feature tree representing the object geometry is thus obtained. This representation is highly parallel and can be effectively exploited in the recognition phase.
