Image recognition app

For my bachelor thesis I have to make an app that recognize logos, eg : I see the logo of a car and I want to find out what car it is. I take a picture of the car’s logo and the app should recognize the image and send me back the Word „Mercedes” so that I can search for information about the car online. I would like that no matter the position of the logo or the light or the color, the app to recognize what that logo represents.

I have tried with API but it doesn't work well because it is callibrated and adjusted for comparison not classification, and I definitely need classification.

I would like to go with on-cloud recognition, but on-device would work too (in which case what algorithm should I use ?).

Thank you very much.

For my bachelor thesis I have to make an app that recognize logos ... the basic idea behind a bachelor or master thesis is that you tackle the problem as a student yourself, not get it solved by the community. Your problem is one of the most frequently tackled cases in computer vision, so please put in some effort. If you wanna go for classification, you will need seperate models, and you might need to go for cascade classifier classification. However I still think this is recognition and not classification, since logo's are rigid and well defined. In that case feature comparison or Bag of Visual Words same much more logical to me.
