Abstract

An experimental comparison of shape classification methods based on autoregressive modeling and Fourier descriptors of closed contours is carried out. The performance is evaluated using two independent sets of data: images of letters and airplanes. Silhouette contours are extracted from non-occluded 2D objects rotated, scaled, and translated in 3D space. Several versions of both types of methods are implemented and tested systematically. The comparison clearly shows better performance of Fourier-based methods, especially for images containing noise
