Abstract
In this paper, we propose a novel method to filter the keypoints and reduce redundant keypoints. SIFT (Scale Invariant Feature Transform) is one of the most robust and widely used methods for image matching and object recognition, which is robust to illumination changes, image scaling and rotation. However SIFT generates a large number of redundant keypoints in the background of the scene. Based on saliency detection and salient region selection, the keypoints out of the selected salient region are pruned in our method. The experimental results show that though the repeatability in our method is a little lower than original SIFT (less than 6%), the number of keypoints in our method is significantly reduced (more than 33%).
