To exploit the existing mature technology of points matching and combine the concept of edge potential functions (EPF), proposing a new method to match curve segments. The method makes full of feature points, the relation between feature points and curves, and gray space, has matching accuracy, and narrows down the searching space and improves the speed of matching.
