SAFFIRE: System for Autonomous Feature Filtering and Intelligent ROI Estimation

by   Marco Boschi, et al.

This work introduces a new framework, named SAFFIRE, to automatically extract a dominant recurrent image pattern from a set of image samples. Such a pattern shall be used to eliminate pose variations between samples, which is a common requirement in many computer vision and machine learning tasks. The framework is specialized here in the context of a machine vision system for automated product inspection. Here, it is customary to ask the user for the identification of an anchor pattern, to be used by the automated system to normalize data before further processing. Yet, this is a very sensitive operation which is intrinsically subjective and requires high expertise. Hereto, SAFFIRE provides a unique and disruptive framework for unsupervised identification of an optimal anchor pattern in a way which is fully transparent to the user. SAFFIRE is thoroughly validated on several realistic case studies for a machine vision inspection pipeline.
