Handheld mobile devices, such as camera phones or PDAs, are expected to become ubiquitous platforms for visual search and mobile augmented reality applications.? A visual database for mobile image matching is typically stored in the cloud.? Hence, for a visual comparison, information must be either uploaded from the mobile to the server, or? downloaded from the server to the mobile.? With relatively slow wireless links, the response time of the system critically depends on how much information must be transferred in both directions.? We review recent advances in mobile matching, using a “bag-of-visual-words” approach with robust feature descriptors, and show that dramatic speed-ups are possible by considering recognition and compression jointly.? We will use real-time implementations for different example applications, such as recognition? of landmarks or media covers, to show the benefit from image processing on the phone, the server, and/or both.
