Interactive Museum Guide: Fast and Robust Recognition of Museum Objects

In: First International Workshop on Mobile Vision (IMV 2006), 13 May 2006, Graz, Austria.


In this paper, we describe the application of the novel SURF (Speeded Up Robust Features) algorithm [Bay2006] for the recognition of objects of art. For this purpose, we developed a prototype of a mobile interactive museum guide consisting of a tablet PC that features a touchscreen and a webcam. This guide recognises objects in museums based on images taken by the visitor. Using different image sets of real museum objects, we demonstrate that both the object recognition performance as well as the speed of the SURF algorithm surpasses the results obtained with SIFT, its main contender.
