We provide new insights to the problem of shape feature description and matching, techniques that are often applied within 3D object recognition pipelines. We subject several state of the art features to systematic evaluations based on multiple datasets from different sources in a uniform manner. We have carefully prepared and performed a neutral test on the datasets for which the descriptors have shown good recognition performance. Our results expose an important fallacy of previous results, namely that the performance of the recognition system does not correlate well with the performance of the descriptor employed by the recognition system. In addition to this, we evaluate several aspects of the matching task, including the efficiency of the different features, and the potential in using dimension reduction. To arrive at better generalization properties, we introduce a method for fusing several feature matches with a limited processing overhead. Our fused feature matches provide a significant increase in matching accuracy, which is consistent over all tested datasets. Finally, we benchmark all features in a 3D object recognition setting, providing further evidence of the advantage of fused features, both in terms of accuracy and efficiency.
