I suggest to extend the BOW framework. Note that the distance between two features is no more in Euclidean space, it must be Hamming distance. So the following idea should work

  • to build visual vocabulary: the visual words are randomly selected among the training binary features.

  • assign a feature to the visual word of smallest Hamming distance.
