Abstract: Image registration is a central problem to many tasks for image processing and is widely used in many applications such as automatic navigation, medical diagnostics, computer vision and etc. An image registration scheme using image normalization is proposed in this paper. Image feature points robust to rotation, scaling, noise and JPEG compression are obtained by the affine invariant Harris feature point detector and used to make the Delaunay triangle to estimate the affine transform parameters through image normalization. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme can effectively estimate rotation, scaling and translate parameters and has high estimation accuracy under common image attacks.
