IMAGE BASED LINKAGE - Image based hybrid media


Goals and plan of the study

Mobile phones with integrated digital cameras provide new ways to get access to digital information and services.

Research on image retrieval algorithms is very active. Image matching algorithm should be robust against variations in illumination, viewpoint, and scale. Mobile applications should work with stringent bandwidth, memory and computational requirements. This requires the optimisation of the performance and the memory usage. If the image matching can be done directly on a mobile client the system latency is reduced. Distributing the computation among the users provides better system scalability.

The key purpose of the project is to develop technology for the image based linking. This technology can be used for various purposes and it enables linking of the digital information to the physical world. Possible application areas cover outdoor advertising, magazine and newspaper advertising, tourist applications, shopping.
