ABSTRACT Performance analysis is very important in the study and design of scene matching algorithm. Based on the analysis of the common performance parameters, robustness of scene matching algorithm is defined, including the definitions of robust stability and robust performance, and the corresponding evaluation parameters matching margin and matching adaptability are given. With application of these robustness parameters on 8 scene matching algorithms, quantitative analysis results of algorithm robustness are obtained. The paper provides an important theoretical reference to the performance evaluation of scene matching algorithm.
