BRIEF binary descriptor#

This example demonstrates the BRIEF binary description algorithm. The descriptor consists of relatively few bits and can be computed using a set of intensity difference tests. The short binary descriptor results in low memory footprint and very efficient matching based on the Hamming distance metric. BRIEF does not provide rotation-invariance. Scale-invariance can be achieved by detecting and extracting features at different scales.
