In this paper we present a novel place recognition method. Instead of directly using large numbers of SIFT features as visual landmarks, we first use a jigsaw puzzle image segmentation algorithm to segment the input scene image into regions that may correspond to objects or parts of objects. Based on these image regions, we further detect a set of salient… CONTINUE READING
