MULTISCALE IMAGE ANALYSIS BASED ON ROBUST AND ADAPTIVE MORPHOLOGICAL SCALE-SPACES
Keywords:adaptability, morphological operators, partial differential equations, robustness
AbstractMathematical morphology is a powerful tool for image analysis; however, classical morphological operators suffer from lacks of robustness against noise, and also intrinsic image features are not accounted at all in the process. We propose in this work a new and different way to overcome such limits, by introducing both robustness and locally adaptability in morphological operators, which are now defined in a manner such that intrinsic image features are accounted. Dealing with partial differential equations (PDEs) for generalized Cauchy problems, we show that proposed PDEs are equivalent to impose robustness and adaptability of corresponding sup-inf operators, to structuring functions. Accurate numerical schemes are also provided to solve proposed PDEs, and experiments conducted for both synthetic and real images, show the efficiency and robustness of our approach.
