saddle_points_sub_pixsaddle_points_sub_pixSaddlePointsSubPixsaddle_points_sub_pixSaddlePointsSubPixSaddlePointsSubPix extracts saddle points from the image ImageImageImageImageImageimage with subpixel precision, i.e., points where along one direction the image intensity is minimal while at the same time along a different direction the image intensity is maximal. To do so, in each point the input image is approximated by a quadratic polynomial in x and y and subsequently the polynomial is examined for saddle points. The partial derivatives, which are necessary for setting up the polynomial, are calculated either with various Gaussian derivatives or using the facet model, depending on FilterFilterFilterFilterFilterfilter. In the first case, SigmaSigmaSigmaSigmaSigmasigma determines the size of the Gaussian kernels, while in the second case, before being processed the input image is smoothed by a Gaussian whose size is determined by SigmaSigmaSigmaSigmaSigmasigma. Therefore, 'facet'"facet""facet""facet""facet""facet" results in a faster extraction at the expense of slightly less accurate results. A point is accepted to be a saddle point if the absolute values of both eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix are greater than ThresholdThresholdThresholdThresholdThresholdthreshold but their signs differ. The eigenvalues correspond to the curvature of the gray value surface.

saddle_points_sub_pixsaddle_points_sub_pixSaddlePointsSubPixsaddle_points_sub_pixSaddlePointsSubPixSaddlePointsSubPix is especially useful for the detection of corners, where fields of different intensity join together like the black and white fields of a chess board. Their high contrast and shape facilitate the location and the determination of the precise position of such corners.
