Title: Increasing Illumination Invariance of SURF Feature Detector through Color Constancy

Abstract: Most of the original image feature detectors are not able to cope with large photometric variations, and their extensions that should improve detection eventually increase the computational cost and introduce more noise to the system. Here we extend the original SURF algorithm increasing its invariance to illumination changes. Our approach uses the local space average color descriptor as working space to detect invariant features. A theoretical analysis demonstrates the impact of distinct photometric variations on the response of blob-like features detected with the SURF algorithm. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach in several illumination conditions including the presence of two or more distinct light sources, variations in color, in offset and scale.
