Recent advances in computer vision have significantly reduced the difficulty of object classification and recognition. Robust feature detector and descriptor algorithms are particularly useful, forming the basis for many recognition and classification applications. These algorithms have been used in divergent bag-of-words and structural matching approaches. This work demonstrates a recognition application, based upon the SURF feature descriptor algorithm, which fuses bag-of-words and structural verification techniques. The resulting system is applied to the domain of car recognition and achieves accurate (> 90%) and real-time performance when searching databases containing thousands of images.
