Real-Time Object Detection and Recognition System Using OpenCV via SURF Algorithm in Emgu CV for Robotic Handling in Libraries

Corina Monica Pop, Gheorghe-Leonte Mogan, and Răzvan Gabriel Boboc
Abstract—This paper describes an experimental system that has been designed, implemented and tested for object recognition and tracking in still, respectively dynamic images – successive video frames captured in real time (live) with a web camera – based on Intel’s open source computer vision functions library, OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision). We propose a real-time object recognition system in intelligent library environments. The system consists of two key modules: feature extraction and object recognition. Specific detectors such as SIFT (Scale-Invariant Feature Transform) and SURF (Speeded Up Feature Robust) are efficient methods that provide high quality features, yet are too computational for use in real-time applications. This paper also proposes a low complexity, robust object recognition and tracking method using advanced real time feature matching. It combines Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition C# with OpenCV Function library using SURF algorithm in Emgu CV to develop the software. The tests showed that the proposed system and method are more efficient and more robust than in most traditional applications.

Index Terms—Computer vision, object recognition, object tracking, OpenCV, SURF.
