Model-Based Object Recognition

A Survey of Recent Research

Arthur R. Pope
Technical Report 94?04
January 1994


We survey the main ideas behind recent research in model-based object recognition. The survey covers representations for models and images and the methods used to match them. Perceptual organization, the use of invariants, indexing schemes, and match verification are also reviewed. We conclude that there is still much room for improvement in the scope, robustness, and efficiency of object recognition methods. We identify what we believe are the ways improvements will be achieved.
