Object Recognition on Mobile Devices

Allan Lainchbury


Supervised by Dave Marshall; Moderated by Kirill Sidorov

From an abstract level, the application is used to help find everyday items that you commonly loose (such as house keys etc.) by using the camera on a phone. How this works will be the system allows you to virtually 'tag' an item through your camera. The camera then recognises the object by shape, colour etc. and can distinguish it in a room full of other objects so long as it is somewhat visible to the camera itself. The application will then recognise and highlight the tagged object. Multiple tagged objects can then be selected from a drop down menu in order to prioritise finding different items.
