The main aim of 3D Object recognition is to recognize objects under translation and rotation. Geometric Hashing is one of the methods which represents a rotation and translation invariant approach and provides indexing of structural features of the objects in an efficient way. In this thesis, Geometric Hashing is used to store the geometric relationship between discriminative surface properties which are based on surface curvature. In this thesis surface is represented by shape index and splash where shape index defines particular shaped surfaces and splash introduces topological information. The method is tested on 3D object databases and compared with other methods in the literature.

3D object recognition from range images using transform invariant object representation
AKAGÜNDÜZ, erdem; Ulusoy, İlkay (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-10-28)
3D object recognition is performed using a scale and orientation invariant feature extraction method and a scale and orientation invariant topological representation. 3D surfaces are represented by sparse, repeatable, informative and semantically meaningful 3D surface structures, which are called multiscale features. These features are extracted with their scale (metric size and resolution) using the classified scale-space of 3D surface curvatures. Triplets of these features are used to represent the surfac...
A comparative performance evaluation of scale invariant interest point detectors for infrared and visual images
Emir, Erdem; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, the performance of four state-of-the-art feature detectors along with SIFT and SURF descriptors in matching object features of mid-wave infrared, long-wave infrared and visual-band images is evaluated across viewpoints and changing distance conditions. The utilized feature detectors are Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT), multiscale Harris-Laplace, multiscale Hessian-Laplace and Speeded Up Robust Features (SURF) detectors, all of which are invariant to image scale and rotation. Feature...
Real time 3d surface feature extraction on fpga
Tellioğlu, Zafer Haşim; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Three dimensional (3D) surface feature extractions based on mean (H) and Gaussian (K) curvature analysis of range maps, also known as depth maps, is an important tool for machine vision applications such as object detection, registration and recognition. Mean and Gaussian curvature calculation algorithms have already been implemented and examined as software. In this thesis, hardware based digital curvature processors are designed. Two types of real time surface feature extraction and classification hardwar...
ISAR imaging and motion compensation
Küçükkılıç, Talip; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) systems the motion of the target can be classified in two main categories: Translational Motion and Rotational Motion. A small degree of rotational motion is required in order to generate the synthetic aperture of the ISAR systems. On the other hand, the remaining part of the target’s motion, that is any degree of translational motion and the large degree of rotational motion, degrades ISAR image quality. Motion compensation techniques focus on eliminating the effe...
Computation of radar cross sections of complex targets by shooting and bouncing ray method
Özgün, Salim; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this study, a MATLAB® code based on the Shooting and Bouncing Ray (SBR) algorithm is developed to compute the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of complex targets. SBR is based on ray tracing and combine Geometric Optics (GO) and Physical Optics (PO) approaches to compute the RCS of arbitrary scatterers. The presented algorithm is examined in two parts; the first part addresses a new aperture selection strategy named as “conformal aperture”, which is proposed and formulated to increase the performance of the cod...
