Robust local feature detector and descriptor

Goal: Robust matching of features between multiple images using a Hessian-based detector and a suitable descriptor. A detector and descriptor that takes into account the approximately known distortions will have a much higher matching rate, especially when fisheye or wide angle images are used.

  • Implementation of the feature detector and descriptor, and a suitable test suite to verify the correctness of the implementation.

Deliverables

A desired result of the projects would be:

  • C or C++ library that implements the detection and description steps.
  • An executable for extracting features from image file.
  • Test suite to evaluate descriptor on a large amount of images.
  • Integration of the library into hugin
