Fast and Robust Image Matching using Contextual Information and Relaxation

Abstract : This tackles the difficult problem of images matching under projective transformation. Recently, several algorithms capable of handling large changes of viewpoint as well as large changes of scale have been proposed. They are based on the comparison of local, invariant descriptors which are robust to these transformations. However, since no image descriptor is robust enough to avoid mismatches, an additional step of outliers rejection is often needed. The accuracy of which strongly depends on the number of mismatches. In this paper, we show that the matching process can be made robust to ensure a very few number of mismatches based on a relaxation labeling technique. The main contribution of this work is in providing an efficient and fast implementation of a relaxation method which can deal with large sets of features. Furthermore, we show how the contextual information can be obtained and used in this robust and fast algorithm. Experiments with real data and comparison with other matching methods, clearly show the improvements in the matching results.
