Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DISPLAYING OR SEARCHING FOR OBJECT IN IMAGE AND COMPUTER-READABLE STORAGE MEDIUM
Abstract:
A method for displaying an object appearing in an image by processing a signal corresponding to a still or video image comprising a step of deriving a curvature scale space (CSS) display of the outline of an object by smoothing the outline of the object, a step of deriving at least one additional parameter reflecting the distribution of the shape or size of a version obtained by smoothing the original curve, and a step of correlating the CSS display with the additional parameter serving as a shape descriptor of the object.
