In this paper, we present a novel rotation-invariant and computationally efficient texture descriptor called Dominant Rotated Local Binary Pattern (DRLBP). A rotation invariance is achieved by computing the descriptor with respect to a reference in a local neighborhood. A reference is fast to compute maintaining the computational simplicity of the Local Binary Patterns (LBP). The proposed approach not only retains the complete structural information extracted by LBP, but it also captures the complimentary information by utilizing the magnitude information, thereby achieving more discriminative power. For feature selection, we learn a dictionary of the most frequently occurring patterns from the training images, and discard redundant and non-informative features. To evaluate the performance we conduct experiments on three standard texture datasets: Outex12, Outex 10 and KTH-TIPS. The performance is compared with the state-of-the-art rotation invariant texture descriptors and results show that the proposed method is superior to other approaches.
