Direct Curvature Scale Space: Theory and Corner Detection
March 2007 (vol. 29 no. 3)
pp. 508-512
The Curvature Scale Space (CSS) technique is considered to be a modern tool in image processing and computer vision. Direct Curvature Scale Space (DCSS) is defined as the CSS that results from convolving the curvature of a planar curve with a Gaussian kernel directly. In this paper we present a theoretical analysis of DCSS in detecting corners on planar curves. The scale space behavior of isolated single and double corner models is investigated and a number of model properties are specified which enable us to transform a DCSS image into a tree organization and, so that corners can be detected in a multiscale sense. To overcome the sensitivity of DCSS to noise, a hybrid strategy to apply CSS and DCSS is suggested.
Index Terms:
Scale space, curve convolution, Gaussian smoothing, curvature, corner detection.
