ABSTRACT
A common problem encountered in recognizing real-scene symbols is the perspective deformation. In this paper, a recognition method resistant to perspective deformation is proposed, based on Cross-Ratio Spectrum descriptor. This method shows good resistance to severe perspective deformation and good discriminating power to similar symbols.
INDEX TERMS
Symbol recognition, perspective deformation.
