The basic problem for a mobile vision system is determining where it is located within the world. In this paper, a recognition system is presented that is capable of identifying known places such as rooms and corridors. The system relies on a bag of features approach using locally prominent image regions. Realworld locations are modeled using a mixture of Gaussians representation, thus allowing for a multimodal scene characterization. Local regions are represented by a set of 108 statistical

From this set the system needs to determine which subset of descriptors captures regularities between image regions of the same location, and also discriminates between regions of different places. A genetic algorithm is used to solve this selection task, using a fitness measure that promotes: 1) a high classification accuracy; 2) the selection of a minimal subset of descriptors; and 3) a high separation among place models. The approach is tested on two real world examples: a) using a sequence of still images with 4 different locations; and b) a sequence that contains 8 different locations. Results confirm the ability of the system to identify previously seen places in a real-world setting.
