Abstract Object classification is an important step in visual recognition and semantic analysis of visual content. In this paper, we propose a method for classification of objects that is invariant to illumination color, illumination direction and viewpoint based on 3D color histogram. A 3D color histogram of an image is represented as a 2D image, to capture the color composition while preserving the neighborhood information of color bins, to realize the necessary visual cues for classification of objects. Also, the ability of convolutional neural ...
