    A unified feature extraction scheme, the two-dimensional (2-D) linear prediction model-based decorrelation method, is presented. By applying 2-D causal linear prediction model to decorrelate a textured image, the very heavy computation load required when using a whitening operator to decorrelate the image, or the significant information loss when using the gradient operator to approximately whiten...

    Associative evidential reasoning is the mechanism of combining evidence and evaluating hypotheses, which is the core of many computational systems. It is shown that under the generalized symmetry condition, that is, f(a,b)=neg (f(neg(a), neg(b))), where f is the combination operator satisfying common requirements like associativity and...

  • Image enhancement for segmentation by self-induced autoregressive filtering

    A filter induced by the autoregressive pattern from an image is used to enhance the image itself. The enhanced image usually reveals the wave pattern and nonstationary structures more clearly than the original. Unlike the Fourier analysis, local structures in the image are still retained. The merits have been demonstrated on simulated data and synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) ocean imagery View full abstract»

  • Design of perimeter estimators for digitized planar shapes

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):611 - 622
    Cited by:  Papers (10)

    Measurement of perimeters of planar shapes from their digitized images is an important task of computer vision systems. A general methodology for the design of simple and accurate parameter estimation algorithms is described. It is based on minimizing the maximum estimation error for digitized straight edges over all orientations. Two perimeter estimators are derived and their performance is teste... View full abstract»

  • Surface orientation from a projected grid

    Two simple methods are given for obtaining the surface shape using a projected grid. After the camera is calibrated to the 3-D workspace, the only input date needed for the computation of surface normals are grid intersect points in a single 2-D image. The first method performs nonlinear computations based on the distortion of the lengths of the grid edges and does not require a full calibration m... View full abstract»

  • Optimal estimation of contour properties by cross-validated regularization

    The problem of estimating the properties of smooth, continuous contours from discrete, noisy samples is used as vehicle to demonstrate the robustness of cross-validated regularization applied to a vision problem. A method for estimation of contour properties based on smoothing spline approximations is presented. Generalized cross-validation is to devise an automatic algorithm for finding the optim...

  • Efficient parallel algorithms for image template matching on hypercube SIMD machines

    Efficient parallel algorithms developed on hypercube SIMD (single-instruction multiple data-stream) machines for image template matching are presented. Most of these parallel algorithms are asymptotically optimal in their time complexities. These results improve the known bounds in the literature View full abstract»

  • On the recognition of curved objects

    The problem of determining the identity and pose of occluded objects from noisy data is examined. Previous work has shown that local measurements of the position and surface orientation of small patches of an object's surface may be used in a constrained search process to solve this problem, for the case of rigid polygonal objects using 2-D sensory data, or rigid polyhedral objects using 3-D data....

  • A shape from shading analysis for a single perspective image of a polyhedron

    A shape-from-shading analysis for a single perspective image of a polyhedron is presented. Given a single perspective image of a polyhedron, the depth of any point of the polyhedron from the camera, the direction of the light source illuminating the polyhedron and the albedo of the polyhedron, a system of algebraic equations are derived, which, when combined with edge information, quantitatively d...

  • Range image segmentation based on differential geometry: a hybrid approach

    The authors describe a hybrid approach to the problem of image segmentation in range data analysis, where hybrid refers to a combination of both region- and edge-based considerations. The range image of 3-D objects is divided into surface primitives which are homogeneous in their intrinsic differential geometric properties and do not contain discontinuities in either depth of surface orientation. ...

  • Recovering three-dimensional shape from a single image of curved objects

    An algorithm to recover three-dimensional shape, i.e., surface orientation and relative depth from a single segmented image is presented. It is assumed that the scene is composed of opaque regular solid objects bounded by piecewise smooth surfaces with no markings or textures. It is also assumed that the reflectance map R(n ) is known. For the canonical case of Lambertian surface... View full abstract»

    The decomposition of deformations by principal warps is demonstrated. The method is extended to deal with curving edges between landmarks. This formulation is related to other applications of splines current in computer vision. How they might aid in the extraction of features for analysis, comparison, and diagnosis of biological and medical images in indicated View full abstract»

  • A representation theory for morphological image and signal processing

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1276 KB)

    A unifying theory for many concepts and operations encountered in or related to morphological image and signal analysis is presented. The unification requires a set-theoretic methodology, where signals are modeled as sets, systems (signal transformations) are viewed as set mappings, and translational-invariant systems are uniquely characterized by special collections of input signals. This approac... View full abstract»
