Scale-invariant feature results

Sift results on image of rice

Rice SIFT
The curves are well detected but horizontal and vertical lines are lost.

It is evident that it is the image of a person.

Although SIFT is extremely useful, it cannot easily find vertical or horizontal lines because they are not considered feature points. Since our image templates were made up of almost all straight lines, we had a significant issue. Due to time constraints we chose to implement the edge functions in MatLab. Instead of passing the results of SIFT into the Hough Transform and Moment of Inertia we passed the results of the edge functions in MatLab.

Clearly the edge results from matlab are much more suited to our type of test images.

Hough transform results

Even with noise same peaks are found.

Same peaks are found with noise.

With this amount of noise the peaks are still found. As long as the noise does not interfere with the edges the peaks will always be found. However, if the edges are lost then the Hough Peaks will be incorrect.

Moment of inertia results

Description of steps in demo

  1. Read in the image as a matrix of type ‘double’ and turn it into a logical array (im2bw function)
  2. Using bwboundaries functions, find all connected boundaries (default is 4-connectedness of pixel)
  3. Iterate through all closed boundaries and mask all pixels within boundary to be 1 and 0 outside the boundary
  4. Find the moment of inertia of the masked images which is normalized by the square total number of pixels

Moment of inertia method on simple image

Moment of Inertia Method works perfectly on a test image without overlaps where the shapes are significantly different.

However, bwboundaries returns closed boundaries which would create problems when you have intersection of lines.

Moment of inertia method on image with overlaps

We can clearly see from the previous images that the function now detects 4 objects instead of the three that we are interested in, shown below as the two larger squares traced out by red outline and the smaller one filled by the color green.

In the above image, objects in the top right and top left corners of the subplots differ in moment of inertia by 0.703%, in spite of having drastically different shapes. However, we note that such algorithm would only produce false positive.

Absolutely, for me. My problems with math started in First grade...involving a nun Sister Anastasia, bad vision, talking & getting expelled from Catholic school. When it comes to math I just can't focus and all I can hear is our family silverware banging and clanging on the pink Formica table.

I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
