I am trying to detect brands in pictures but I'm having some problems.

I did the cascade training with 500 positives samples and 1440 negatives samples, but I'm getting a lot of bad results. The cascade classifier detects the brand and further a lot of things that isn't the brand.


I tried to use SURF features to eliminate these bad results and look that it isn't work:

The same result occured with a image that is not my brand:

Look the detections:

My question is: How do I eliminate the bad results and just stay with the brand that I am looking for ? What I'm doing wrong ?

Are you looking for a brand logo or something else? Can you explain a bit more, like how big is the object you are trying to recognize in absolute terms as well as in relation to other objects in the image.

Hi! You can go with opencv feature detection algorithms such as SIFT.

Have a look at the feature detection module of opencv. Play around with that & come up with some results.

Also have a look at this thread.

I followed your advice and I edited my question. My results is getting better with SURF than SIFT. It didn't solve the problem yet.

Implementing SURF also involves filtering the matches, i.e., finding good matches. Checkout this link,

I'm doing exactly in this way, and the results are these in question.
