Summary: 
In this paper we will present a new color distance measure, that is, angular distance of cumulative histogram. The proposed measure is robust to light variation. We also applied the weitght value to DR, DG, DB according to a Hue histogram of the query image. Moreover, we have compared the measure to previous popular measure that is cumulative L1 distance measure. We show that our method performed more accurate and perceptually relevant result.
