I have a question about LBPs, but firstly let me explain what I am trying to do.

I am trying to match coins using LBPs. I have an input coin and I want to compare it with other coins and see if the coin is of the same denomination. Attached below are 3 images:

  • R1 - the input image - the one to be compared to
  • R1T - needs to be compared to R1
  • R2T - needs to be compared to R1

I have found a very good source here: Local Binary Patterns

All my code needs to simply do is say that R1T is a match and R2T is not a match.

How can I implement something like this?

I think going with a texture matching technique would be an overkill. I think that it would be better if you were trying first to extract the arithmetic information from the images by using an OCR approach and then determine a match by comparing this information for each sample.

@theodore there are some coins without text or numbers. So I need to do texture matching.

@Leo_ ok I see. You did not mention that on your initial message so I thought that all your images would contain numeric information.

If your images are all like the ones you showed us, meaning no scale or illumination change and nice background, then you could either use:

  1. Template matching using matchTemplate and select the sample that gives the best result.
  2. Binarize, get blobs and sort the coins based on shape or area.

That's what I would try first, but maybe you have some other constraints?
