This is the most simple feature descriptor I can imagine. It just samples and integrates along radial lines as shown in the figure below and the sum is stored as an element in the feature vector. Nonetheless, it works very well!

This vector was the base for the RLF descriptor, which also includes sampling using a Gaussian mask. This descriptor samples on pixel centers and is therefore many times faster.
