Curvature scale space corner detector with adaptive thresholdand

Abstract

Corners play an important role in object identification methods used in machine vision and image processing systems. Single-scale feature detection finds it hard to detect both fine and coarse features at the same time. On the other hand, multi-scale feature detection is inherently able to solve this problem. This paper proposes an improved multi-scale corner detector with dynamic region of support, which is based on Curvature Scale Space (CSS) technique. The proposed detector first uses an adaptive local curvature threshold instead of a single global threshold as in the original and enhanced CSS methods. Second, the angles of corner candidates are checked in a dynamic region of support for eliminating falsely detected corners. The proposed method has been evaluated over a number of images and compared with some popular corner detectors. The results showed that the proposed method offers a robust and effective solution to images containing widely different size features.
