A mean field annealing approach to robust corner detection
—This paper is an extension of our previous paper to improve the capability of detecting corners. We proposed a method of boundary smoothing for curvature estimation using a constrained regularization technique in the previous paper. We propose another approach to boundary smoothing for curvature estimation in this paper to improve the capability of detecting corners. The method is based on a minimization strategy known as mean field annealing which is a deterministic approximation to simulated annealing. It removes the noise while preserving corners very well. Thus, we can detect corners easier and better in this approach than in the constrained regularization approach. Finally, some matching results based on the corners detected by corner sharpness in the mean field annealing approach are presented as a demonstration of the power of the proposed algorithm.
