Extracts local binary patterns in local histograms and concatenate these histograms

This algorithm is a legacy one. The API has changed since its implementation. New versions and forks will need to be updated.
This algorithm is splittable

Algorithms have at least one input and one output. All algorithm endpoints are organized in groups. Groups are used by the platform to indicate which inputs and outputs are synchronized together. The first group is automatically synchronized with the channel defined by the block in which the algorithm is deployed.

Group: main

Endpoint Name Data Format Nature
image system/array_3d_uint8/1 Input
eye_centers system/eye_positions/1 Input
features system/array_1d_floats/1 Output

Parameters allow users to change the configuration of an algorithm when scheduling an experiment

This algorithms extracts Local Binary Pattern Histogram Sequence (LBPHS) features as introduced by [Ahonen04]. First, the image is aligned accorsing to the hand-labeled eye locations. Then, uniform circular Local Binary Patterns (LBPs) [Ojala96] are extracted from the aligned image. Afterwards, the image is split into (possibly overlapping) blocks, and a local histogram of LBP features is extracted for each block. Finally, all histograms are concatenated to form the full LBPHS feature vector.
