Finding correspondences between two images is a fundamental building block of many computer vision applications like camera tracking and 3D mapping. The most common approach to image matching relies on sparse interest points that are matched using high-dimensional representations encoding their local visual appearance. Reliably describing each point is challenging in conditions that exhibit symmetries, weak texture, or appearance changes due to varying viewpoints and lighting. To reject outliers that arise from occlusion and missing points, such representations should also be discriminative. This yields two conflicting objectives, robustness, and uniqueness, that are hard to satisfy.

To address these limitations, SuperGlue introduced a new paradigm – a deep network that considers both images at the same time to jointly match sparse points and reject outliers. It leverages the powerful Transformer model to learn to match challenging image pairs from large datasets.

Univrses need to uniquely identify features across several images captured from different viewpoints and with different lighting/seasons.



The primary objectives of this research are as follows:

  1. Deep feature matching for bounding box matching: How can these point-to-point matches be extended to bounding box to bounding box matching?
  2. Pretrained models vs fine-tuned model: What are the performances of the pretrained model on our data? Do we benefit from fine-tuning them on our data?
  3. Robustness evaluation: How robust is it to large point of view changes, temporal changes (time of the day, time of the year), repetitive patterns?
