Object Recognition in Color Images by the Self Configuring System MEMORI

Authors: Michela Lecca


System MEMORI automatically detects and recognizes rotated and/or rescaled versions of the objects of a database within digital color images with cluttered background. This task is accomplished by means of a region grouping algorithm guided by heuristic rules, whose parameters concern some geometrical properties and the recognition score of the database objects. This paper focuses on the strategies implemented in MEMORI for the estimation of the heuristic rule parameters. This estimation, being automatic, makes the system a self configuring and highly user-friendly tool.

Keywords: Clustering, Image Segmentation, Automatic object recognition, region grouping, Contentbased Image Retrieval System, Region Adjacency Graph
