Abstract : Extrema of curvature are useful key points for different image analysis tasks. Indeed, polygonal approximation or arc decomposition methods used often these points to initialize or to improve their algorithms. Several shape-based image retrieval methods focus also their descriptors on key points. This paper is focused on the detection of extrema of curvature points for a raster-to-vector-conversion framework. We propose an original adaptation of an approach used into nonlinear control for fault-diagnosis and fault-tolerant control based on algebraic derivation and which is robust to noise. The experimental results are promising and show the robustness of the approach when the contours are bathed into a high level speckled noise.
