Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a new model fit type edge feature measurement method. In this new method, an accurate edge model, which explains well the practical edge gray level patterns in an actually observed image, is made by considering the point spread function in the image recording process as well as the edge features, that is, edge position and orientation. This method consists of two preparation steps and a measurement step. Step 1: Gray level patterns with various edge features values are generated on an edge pixel and its surrounding pixels based on this model. Step 2: The gray levels are fed, as teaching signals, into error back propagation type neural networks with a 3-layer structure. The mapping parameters used to determine the edge features are obtained from the gray level patterns. Step 3: The edge features are calculated by feeding the gray levels in an observed image into the networks after learning. Experimental results proved that this method can determine edge position and orientation with a high accuracy of 0.07 pixels and 0.8 degree(s), respectively.
