Approaches to object recognition that rely on structural, or part-based, descriptions have a long-standing tradition in research on both computer and biological vision. Originally developed in the field of computer graphics, Binford (1971) was among the first to suggest that similar representations might be used by biological systems for object recognition. According to this author, such representations could be based on certain three-dimensional (3D) part primitives termed generalized cones.
