Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1156445A2] The method involves providing a digital representation of the object, selecting a search window within the representation or a section of the representation that only appears once within the representation. At least one search section within the search window is then selected. The position of the search section within the window and/or the geometric shape of the search section may be determined dynamically based on the contents of the search window. Independent claims are also included for a digital camera and a system for detecting objects.
