Abstract :

ABSTRACT: Due to the bandwidth limitation in wireless networks, transmission overhead is a big problem in Mobile Visual Search (MVS). Although many kinds of compressed descriptors are proposed, designing a suitable loss less compressed descriptor has proven elusive. In this paper. The key point of the proposed framework is to migrate the vector quantization in the bag of visual words model from the server to the client. In this framework, no matter what descriptors are used, the client only transmits the ID numbers of the visual words to the server, thereby reaching the minimal possible transmission overhead.
