ORB Bug, compute removes all keypoints?

I have a little image 50x50.

I do something like this (pseudocode):

 //> kp.size() is about 50 keypoints

 //> Now kp.size() == 0

This mean that after I have called .compute the method has deleted all keypoints.

The Image I am using is this: image description

I believe this is some sort of bug. Someone can confirm? I am using OpenCV 2.4.5

The reasons why you may not get any keypoints:

  • keypoints around the border will be removed
  • keypoints which don't have a strong response will be removed

So, I guess your iamge is too small and doesn't get good keypoints. Thus, other detector/descriptor combinations, e.g. using a dense grid in conjunction with SIFT. Alternatively upscale the image (maybe with a superresolution approach).
