Javier Aldana-Iuit, Dmytro Mishkin, Ondrej Chum, Jiri Matas
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In comparison with detector with similar speed, the Saddle features show superior matching performance on number of challenging datasets.  ...  Experiments show that the Saddle features are general, evenly spread and appearing in high density in a range of images. The Saddle detector is among the fastest proposed.  ...  Matching coverage In some task, such as structure from motion, good coverage of the image by matched point is crucial for the stability of the geometric models and consequently for the reliability of the  ...

Tree-Based Morse Regions: A Topological Approach to Local Feature Detection

Yongchao Xu, Pascal Monasse, Thierry Geraud, Laurent Najman
2014 IEEE Transactions on Image Processing  
TBMR extraction is fast, having the same complexity as MSER. Experimentally, TBMR achieves a repeatability on par with state-of-the-art methods, but obtains a significantly higher number of features.  ...  They correspond to specific nodes on those two trees: (1) to the leaves (extrema) and (2) to the nodes having bifurcation (saddle points).  ...  The authors are also grateful to Pierre Moulon for providing the data and the code for the 3D reconstruction, and to Edwin Carlinet for helping to release the code of TBMR.  ...

Faster and Better: A Machine Learning Approach to Corner Detection

E. Rosten, R. Porter, T. Drummond
2010 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence  
Finally, the comparison demonstrates that using machine learning produces significant improvements in repeatability, yielding a detector that is both very fast and very high quality.  ...  Second, we generalize the detector, allowing it to be optimized for repeatability, with little loss of efficiency.  ...  We concur that this a good choice for the number of features since this appears to be roughly where the repeatability curve for DoG features starts to flatten off.  ...
