The pyramid makes a set of reduced sized images (a pyramid) and performs ORB on each of them. That lets you track the points across scale changes, where the object gets closer or farther from the camera. For example, you find a point on the first, unresized image. Then the object gets closer and you will find the same keypoint on the second layer of the pyramid because it's larger.
