Denoising of Images and Detection of Sharp Edges with Improvement in Classical Edge Detectors

Denoising of Images and Detection of Sharp Edges with Improvement in Classical Edge Detectors

In this paper, our object is to get sharp edges of an image in the presence of the salt-and-pepper noise. To remove this noise we use median filter. We detect edges of this output with the help of classical edge detectors i.e. LoG operator, sobel operator, prewitt operator, but the edges we get are not as sharp. So, we apply our proposed method. We apply adaptive histogram equalization on the output of median filter and perform filtering. Adaptive histogram equalization enhances the contrast of the gray scale image by transforming the values using contrast-limited adaptive histogram equalization. It operates on small regions in the image, called tiles, rather than the entire image. Each tile's contrast is enhanced. The contrast, especially in homogeneous areas, can be limited to avoid amplifying any noise that might be present in the image. After it we detect their edges with the help of given edge detectors. Thus, we get sharp edges of de-noised image. Proposed algorithm of this paper is shown in figure below.

Vehicle License Plates Recognition of Alphanumeric Characters using Edge Detectors

Vehicle License Plates Recognition of Alphanumeric Characters using Edge Detectors

In the recent years canny operator is known to be the best edge detector in the case of images, but this is not true in the case of alphanumeric characters. In this paper, we use two different approaches to compare the results of edge detectors: Sobel, Robert’s, Prewitt, Frei-chen and Canny for edge detection in VLPR. First approach uses visual observation and second calculates Mean Square Error (MSE). We compute the Average MSE for ten vehicle license plates using all the above five edge detectors for alphanumerical characters. Experimental results obtained by both approaches show that the edges obtained with Sobel operator are founds to be smoother, continuous and single pixel as compared to other four edge detectors.

A Quantitative Performance Analysis of Edge Detectors with Hybrid Edge Detector

A Quantitative Performance Analysis of Edge Detectors with Hybrid Edge Detector

Various combination of basic morphological operations such as erosion; dilation; opening and closing are employed for the detection of edge. However, the efficiency of the detector solely depends upon the basic structuring element used. A variety of MM based edge detectors are proposed in literature. Moreover, in [5] Yu-Qian, Zhao, Gui Wei-hua, Chen Zhen-cheng, Tang Jing-tian, and Li Ling-yun had proposed a multi scale and multi structured MM edge detector to track a complete edge feature and to overcome the difficulties with conventional edge detection approaches. In [6], S. Lu, Z. Wang and J. Shen had provided an excellent theory based on fuzzy logic to deal with the uncertainty of edge detection problem. W. Barkhoda, F. A. Tab and O. K. Shahryari [7] proposed a new fuzzy based edge detection algorithm. The proposed method reduces the detection error of some unreal edges and compared the result with the standard algorithms. Liming Hu, Cheng, H. D., and Zhang, Ming [8] had uses the concept of edge continuity and proposed a better edge detector. The proposed edge detector was basically controlled by some fuzzy If-Then inference rules. D. K. Patel and S. A. More [9] used fuzzy logic for accurate and noise free edge detection and then it is enhanced using Cellular Learning Automata. B. K. Balabantaray and B. B. Biswal [10] proposed a hybrid edge detector based on fuzzy inference rule along with modified wavelet transform. The Improved wavelet transform can able to track only horizontally and vertically oriented edge pixels. But its quality degrades for noisy images as it is unable to distinguish edge pixels from noise. Fuzzy rule based technique is used as an external filter.

Semi Optimal Edge Detector based on Simple Standard Deviation with Adjusted Thresholding

Semi Optimal Edge Detector based on Simple Standard Deviation with Adjusted Thresholding

This paper proposes a novel method which combines both median filter and simple standard deviation to accomplish an excellent edge detector for image processing. First of all, a denoising process must be applied on the grey scale image using median filter to identify pixels which are likely to be contaminated by noise. The benefit of this step is to smooth the image and get rid of the noisy pixels. After that, the simple statistical standard deviation could be computed for each 22 window size. If the value of the standard deviation inside the 22 window size is greater than a predefined threshold, then the upper left pixel in the 22 window represents an edge. The visual differences between the proposed edge detector and the standard known edge detectors have been shown to support the contribution in this paper.

Evaluating the Most Efficient Edge Detection Technique for Inspection of Chip Resistor

ABSTRACT: Identification and dimensional measurement of electronic components are important issues to be considered. A lot of research is going on to increase the liberty in dimensional measurements of the electronic components. It is an efficient method which works on previously acquired images. Electronic components such as IC chips, chip resistors, chip capacitors, chip LEDs etc., are identified by edge detection, colour pattern matching and gauging is used for dimensional measurement of the components. In this paper we have compared different template based and optimal edge detection methods. Various edge detection techniques are evaluated to inspect basic dimensions of Surface mount Chip resistor using machine vision. This paper represents the steps and approach to inspect basic notch dimension of chip resistor by using different edge detection techniques which would be helpful for quality inspection within précised time. Roberts, Sobel and Prewitt are used as template based edge detectors and Marr- Hilderth (LoG) Edge detector, Canny Edge detector and Infinite Symmetrical Exponential Filters (ISEF) are used as optimal edge detectors to find the notch termination dimension with discrepancies of SMD resistor. The results of both optimal edge detection algorithm and template based edge detection algorithms were found similar in this case.

Optimized Adaptive Thresholding based Edge Detection Method for MRI Brain Images

Optimized Adaptive Thresholding based Edge Detection Method for MRI Brain Images

In computer vision, edge detection is a fundamental task that needs to point out the true edges to get the best results. That is why it is important to choose edge detectors that fit best to the application. Detection of edge is a fundamental step for most computer vision applications such as MRI feature extraction and remote sensing [1]. The image edge detection refers to extraction of the edges in a digital image. It is a process whose aim is to find points in an image where discontinuities or sharp changes in intensity occur. This process is crucial to understanding the content of an image and has its applications in image analysis and machine vision. It is usually applied in initial stages of computer vision applications. The edge detection aims to localize the boundaries of objects in an image and is a basis for many image analysis and machine vision applications. Conventional approaches to edge detection are computationally expensive because each set of operations has conducted for each pixel. In conventional approaches, the computation time quickly increases with the size of the image. An ACO-based approach has the potential of overcoming the limitations of conventional methods [2].

An Efficient Edge Detection Method Based on Bit-Plane Slicing for Bacterial Images

An Efficient Edge Detection Method Based on Bit-Plane Slicing for Bacterial Images

Bit-plane slicing is a method which divides the image into many binary image planes and categorizes the image data into most significant and least significant information. In this paper a new edge detector using the most significant image data to detect the edges in the bacterial images is developed. This proposed method finds the edges in the higher order bit-planes using contouring technique and combines these edges to get the final edge image. The edges obtained by the proposed method are more accurate than the existing method. The experimental result obtained by the proposed edge detector is compared with the popular edge detectors Canny, Log, Prewitt, Robert and Sobel and have produced best results.

PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF CORNER DETECTORS: A SURVEY

PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF CORNER DETECTORS: A SURVEY

Edge detectors have occasionally been evaluated through specific tasks. The reasoning is that feature detection is not the end goal but only the input for further processing. Hence, the best performance measure is the quality of the input it prepares for the next stage. While this argument is correct to some extent, evaluations based on a specific task and a specific system are difficult to generalize and therefore of limited value. An example of this approach is that of Shin et al. [16] in which a number of edge detectors were compared using an object recognition algorithm.

A Comparative Analysis of Thresholding and Edge Detection Segmentation Techniques

A Comparative Analysis of Thresholding and Edge Detection Segmentation Techniques

Image segmentation techniques play an important role in image recognition system. It helps in refining our study of images. One part being edge and line detection techniques highlights the boundaries and the outlines of the image by suppressing the background information. They are used to study adjacent regions by separating them from the boundary. The main problem of quantifying different edge detectors is that there is no unique way of studying an image. For example, each person has its own perception of segmenting and analyzing the image. If we reach at two different results arising from the same image then one single particular technique will be declared inconsistent [1].

Evaluating Edge Detection through Boundary Detection

Evaluating Edge Detection through Boundary Detection

Edge detection has been widely used in computer vision and image processing. However, the performance evaluation of the edge- detection results is still a challenging problem. A major dilemma in edge-detection evaluation is the difficulty to balance the objectivity and generality: a general-purpose edge-detection evaluation independent of specific applications is usually not well defined, while an evaluation on a specific application has weak generality. Aiming at addressing this dilemma, this paper presents new evaluation methodology and a framework in which edge detection is evaluated through boundary detection, that is, the likelihood of retrieving the full object boundaries from this edge-detection output. Such a likelihood, we believe, reflects the performance of edge detection in many applications since boundary detection is the direct and natural goal of edge detection. In this framework, we use the newly developed ratio-contour algorithm to group the detected edges into closed boundaries. We also collect a large data set (1030) of real images with unambiguous ground-truth boundaries for evaluation. Five edge detectors (Sobel, LoG, Canny, Rothwell, and Edison) are evaluated in this paper and we find that the current edge-detection performance still has scope for improvement by choosing appropriate detectors and detector parameters.

A Comparative Study on Various Edge Detection Techniques used for the Identification of Penaeid Prawn Species

A Comparative Study on Various Edge Detection Techniques used for the Identification of Penaeid Prawn Species

The main problems is that edge detectors work differently. Some of them may take more time when compared to other. Some edge detectors finds more edges when compared to other. So the edge detection for image mainly depends on the noise, intensity, brightness, and blur. By working with different edge detectors for the same image the actual difference can be found. This paper pertains with study and comparison of various edge detection techniques for a single image and applying the best technique for identifying the species of prawn. The system has to recognize the isolated pattern of prawn which is consisting of its morphological features by which it is identified. As the system acquire an image consisting pattern of prawns then the image will be processed into several phases such as edge detection, feature extraction and then training for identifying the prawn with morphological feature extraction[1] before recognizing the pattern of the Prawn.

Texture Feature Extraction Techniques

Texture Feature Extraction Techniques

ABSTRACT: Texture plays an important role in numerous computer vision applications. Many methods for describing and analyzing of textured surfaces have been proposed. Var iations in the appearance of texture caused by changing illumination and imaging conditions, for example, set high requirements on different analysis methods. In this thesis, methods for extracting texture features and recognizing texture categories using grey level f irst-order and second- order statistics, edge detectors and local binary pattern features are proposed. Unsupervised clustering methods are used for building a labeled training set for a classifier and for studying the performances of these features.

Locating the Upper Body of Covered Humans in application to Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

In addition, in order to preserve stability of the edge quality and avoid influences from environment factors, a Gaussian blur filter [19] is applied before the edge detector. Moreover, the image dimension is reduced initially. There are two advantages using down-scale images: scene abstraction; and an increase in computational speed. Figure 3 displays the sequence of the combined image processing techniques for generating edge images, and Figure 4 compares different edge detectors over a sample image, showing that the proposed approach outperforms others in both producing the outline of the human body and removing noisy edge information.

Analysis on Detecting of Leg Bone Fracture from X-ray Images

San Myint et al [1] present Leg Bone Fracture in x-ray image with preprocessing, segmentation, fracture detection and classification algorithm. In this work, feature extraction is carried out by Hough Transform technique to get line feature. Simulation result is that it can detect fracture or not in the image. It can be extent on small bone, ankle fractures. Fracture detection is carried out with classification approach. Visala DeepilaVegi et al [2] uses fracture detection system with preprocessing, segmentation and Hough Transform technique. There is no classification method .The author also describes comparing the detectors in segmentation. They are Sobel, Prewitt, Roberts and Canny. The author gives conclusion which is Sobel Edge detector is more efficient than the rest of the edge detectors for detecting Hough lines. The result helps the orthopaedicians to identity the fractured area of the bone in no time with transform approach. Future work is identification of type of fracture for radiologists. S.K.Mahendran, et al [3] describe tibia fracture detection with fusion classification techniques in x-ray images. This work is performed SACEN algorithm for preprocessing, wavelets and morphological and active contour based segmentation for segmentation. GLCM features are used for fusion classification. They observe that the results improve accuracy than single classifier. They describe future consideration is that other features like shape are to be considered for detection rate. They also publish ensemble system for fracture detection [4].In this work, results clearly indicates that combination classifiers shows high performance but time is considered single classifier works better. Mahmoud Al-Ayyoub, et al [5] apply various feature extraction methods, binary classification and 5-class classification .In the result, SVM classifier is the most accurate with 85%than 10-fold cross validation technique .But author emphasize classification, no detail explanation for feature extraction process.

Multi Threshold Algorithm Based on Havrda and Charvat Entropy for Edge Detection in Satellite Grayscale Images

Multi Threshold Algorithm Based on Havrda and Charvat Entropy for Edge Detection in Satellite Grayscale Images

The Prewitt edge detector is an appropriate way to esti- mate the magnitude and orientation of an edge. Although differential gradient edge detection needs a rather time consuming calculation to estimate the orientation from the magnitudes in the x and y-directions, the compass edge detection obtains the orientation directly from the kernel with the maximum response. The Prewitt operator is limited to 8 possible orientations, however experience shows that most direct orientation estimates are not much more accurate. This gradient based edge detector is esti- mated in the 3 × 3 neighbourhood for eight directions as shown in Figure 2. All the eight convolution masks are calculated. One convolution mask is then selected, namely that with the largest module [20].
