Abstract

In this paper we describe an interactive guide that is able to automatically retrieve information about objects on display in museums. A visitor can point this mobile device at exhibits and automatically re- trieve descriptions about objects of interest in a non-distractive way. We investigate Gaussian image intensity attenuation and a foveation-based preprocessing approach which both allow to focus interest point extrac- tion towards the center of an image. Furthermore, we describe a post- processing strategy that allows to improve object recognition rates by suppressing multiple matches. The proposed interactive museum guide achieves object recognition via image matching and thus allows the use of model sets that do not need to be segmented.
