Abstract

Multi-modal image registration is a critical step in many remote sensing and visual navigation applications. While image registration techniques developed for single modality images do not perform well for multi-modal registration, techniques developed for multi-modal image registration are not suitable for real-time applications. In this study, we aim to achieve real-time registration of infrared and optical (visible range) images. Specifically, we investigate the use of image-to-image translation deep network to convert infrared images to optical images, which is then applied for keypoint-based image registration.
