Abstract
The generation of recognition programs by hand is a time-consuming, labor-intensive task that typically results in a special purpose program for the recogmtion of a single object or a small set of objects. Recent work in automatic code generation has demonstrated the feasibility of automatically generating object recognition programs from CAD-based descriptions of objects. Many of the programs which perform automatic code generation employ a common paradigm of utilizing explicit object and sensor models to predict object appearances; we refer to the paradigm as appearance-based vision, and refer to the programs as vision algorithm compilers (VACS). In this paper, we discuss the paradigm of appearance-based vision and present in detail two specific VACs: one that computes feature values analytically, and a second that utilizes an appearance simulator to synthesize sample images.
