A novel descriptor able to improve the classification capabilities of a typical pattern recognition system is proposed in this paper. The introduced descriptor is derived by incorporating two efficient region descriptors, namely image moments and Local Binary Patterns (LBP), commonly used in pattern recognition applications, in the last decades. The main idea behind this novel feature extraction methodology is the need of improved recognition capabilities, a goal achieved by the combinative… CONTINUE READING
