Description:Non-parametric parallel Harris-affine detector
Abstract:<b>Experiment:</b> Feature detector.
<b>Description of the application</b>: Feature detectors are used for point-matching based image analysis
algorithm in 3d reconstruction, mosaicing and object detection. Harris-Z is
a new Harris-based feature detector algorithm, characterized by no
parameters tuning to detect region of interest. Preliminary results show
that the proposed methodology returns good results with respect to standard
detectors which need a set of parameters. An uncommon parallel
implementation of the proposed algorithm is used to support the high
computational workload which is required to avoid the approximation of the
results. It differs from the conventional one because an internal
scheduler, based on the expected running time, is used to balance the data
distribution on a client-server model.
<br><br><b>Software requirements:</b> ANSI C math library, Posix Thread library, FFTW3 library.
