This paper proposes a new invariant corner detection algorithm using steerable filters and Harris corner detection. The steerable filters have better orientation selectivity and multi-orientation image decomposition that provide a useful front-end for image-processing and computer vision applications. Corners are important features in a computer vision for object recognition, stereo matching, motion tracking and image registration. These corners are referred as control points or interest points for image registration. In this paper, we examine Harris, SUSAN and propose corner detectors, and compare their performance in terms of consistency.
