Determining Feature Points for Classification of Vehicles
The paper presents a discussion of feature point detectors characteristcs for use in road traffic vehicle classifiers. Prerequisities for classifying vehicles in road traffic scenes are formulated. Detectors requiring the least computational resources suitable for hardware implementation are investigated. A novel rank based morphological detector is proposed which provides good performance in corner detection which is of paramount importance in calculating projective invariants of moving objects.
