In object class recognition, the state-of-the-art works shows using combination varies local features may produce a good performance in recognition. These local features may have a different performance on one category to other category which it depends on the richness of local features. Due to that limitation, the shape features of objects are taken into consideration to be combined with local features. In this paper, we use Fourier Descriptor (FD), Elliptical Fourier Descriptors (EFD) and

This approach identifies the correct and misclassified dataset iteratively. Experimental results indicate that the recognition model outperform improved the accuracy of classification by up to 10% that is comparable to or better than that of state-of-the-art approaches.
