Abstract :

Mobile visual search (MVS) systems recognize objects in the user’s local environment, retrieve interesting and important information about the objects, and overlay the information in the mobile device’s viewfinder. Mobile visual search systems compare images against a database for object recognition. If query data is transmitted over a slow network or processed on a congested server, the latency increases substantially. This seminar report shows how on-device database matching guarantees fast recognition regardless of external conditions. The database signatures must be compact because of limited memory, capable of fast comparisons, and discriminative for robust recognition.
