Repeated patterns (such as windows, balconies, and doors) are prominent and significant features in urban scenes. Therefore, detection of these repeated patterns becomes very important for city scene analysis. This paper attacks the problem of repeated pattern detection in a precise, efficient and automatic way, by combining traditional feature extraction with a Kronecker product based low-rank model. We introduced novel algorithms that extract repeated patterns from rectified images with solid theoretical support. Our method is tailored for 2D images of building façades and tested on a large set of façade images.
