Curve description by histograms of tangent directions
The authors propose a novel approach for the description of objects based on contours in their images using real-valued feature vectors. The approach is particularly suitable when objects of interest have high contrast and texture-free images or when the texture variations are high so textural cues are nuisance factors for classification. The proposed descriptor is suitable for nearest neighbour classification still popular in embedded vision applications when the power considerations outweigh the performance requirements. They describe object outlines purely based on the histograms of contour tangent directions mimicking many of the design heuristics of texture-based descriptors such as scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT). However, unlike SIFT and its variants, the proposed approach is directly designed to work with contour data and it is robust to variations inside and outside the object outline as well as the sampling of the contour itself. They show that relying on tangent direction estimation as opposed to gradient computation yields a more robust description and higher nearest neighbour classification rates in a variety of classification problems.
