How to constrain the object detection problem?
It would be tempting to ask for precision such as: "It depends, does it have to be viewpoint invariant, is there going to be viewpoint changes, etc.?" Actually, it is exactly what I want to know. I have a specific application in mind and I need a structured way to help me constrain and define correctly the problem. I am pursuing a graduate degree but I am new to the field.
I mean, at first I read the literature about things such as binary keypoint descriptor, etc. but in the end, I am putting the cart before the horse, not having constrained my problem correctly, I cannot know or prove whether binary keypoint descriptors or else are a good starting point for my application...
Unfortunately my adviser is unavailable for a week or two and my colleagues are not specialized in that field.
