Feature points tracking using photometric model and colorimetric invariants

Abstract : This article proposes several colour points tracking methods which are robust to illumination changes. Firstly, the illumination correction is achieved by computing simultaneously a local photometric model and a motion model during the image sequence. Secondly, some colour invariants are used to compensate in each point for the illumination changes. Then, since most of these attributes are not sufficiently robust to model specular highlights occurrence, we propose a third method which jointly uses a local photometric model and a global correction, by using colour invariants. To finish, the three methods are compared through experimental results, on images sequences where specular highlights and lighting changes appear.
