The main issues of developing an automatic and reliable scheme for spline-fitting are discussed and addressed in this paper, which are not fully covered in previous papers or algorithms. The proposed method incorporates B-spline active contours, the minimum description length (MDL) principle, and a novel control point insertion strategy based on maximizing the potential for energy-reduction maximization (PERM). A comparison of test results shows that it outperforms one of the better existing methods
