Paper Abstract

Challenge in the registration of battlefield images in visible and far-infrared bands is the feature inconsistency. We propose a contour-based approach for the registration and apply two free-form curve-matching algorithms: adaptive hill climbing and the iterative closest point algorithm. Both algorithms do not require explicit curve feature correspondence, are designed to be robust against outliers. We formulate the search as an adaptive hill climbing optimization for minimizing the partial Hausdorff distances. In the iterative closest point algorithm we choose the mean partial distance as the objective function, so that outliers can be easily handled by using rank order statistics.
