In pattern recognition, the choice of features to be detected is a critical factor to determine the success or failure of a method; much research has gone into finding the best features for particular tasks [1]. When images are detected by digital cameras, they are usually acquired as rectangular arrays of pixels, so the initial features are pixel values. Some methods use those pixel values directly for processing, for instance in normal matched filtering [2], whereas other methods execute some degree of pre-processing, such as binarizing the pixel values [3].
