Abstract : In this paper we present a new descriptor based on the Radon transform. We propose a histogram of the Radon transform, called HRT, which is invariant to common geometrical transformations. For black and white shapes, the HRT descriptor is a histogram of shape lengths at each orientation. The experimental results, defined on different databases and compared with several well-known descriptors, show the robustness of our method.
