Abstract
Inspired by the process of manual registration, a method based on visual attention is proposed in this paper for multi-sensor image registration. In the first stage, the corner points are selected from both of the multi-sensor images using multi-scale Harris detector and then the outlines are extracted by Gabor filter. In the second stage, the selected points are described based on the contour images to find the matching pairs. Finally, the parameters of the affine transformation model between the images are obtained according to the matching pairs. Pairs of visible and infrared images are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm and SIFT algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed method can achieve good performance for registering visible and infrared images.
