Have you any idea about implementing 2D object recognition with MATLAB? Which characteristics of objects can feed a neural network?
It's my training data-set (provided by ETH University of Switzerland)
What is the start point?

There are 5 view of each object, and whole objects are 66.

    $\begingroup$ please be more specific, at the current moment the question is too vague. Also it is better to give a preview of data in the question. I for one am very wary of downloading unknown archive files from the internet. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I suppose you have the data imported in Matlab, so can you post the preview of data as an output from Matlab prompt. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I like this paper; it lists most of important keywords, has some nice ideas itself and contains state-of-art from 2007. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


People tend to use DHOG (Dense Histograms of Orientations of Gradient), which is closely related to SIFT and other image description method for this purpose. There is another commonly used image description method called SURF.

You can take a look at VLFeat.
