Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe an unsupervised approach to seabed co-segmentation over the multiple sonar images collected in sonar surveys. We adapt a traditional single image segmentation texton-based approach to the sonar survey task by modifying the texture extraction filter bank to better model possible sonar image textures. Two different algorithms for building a universal texton library are presented that produce common pixel labels across multiple images. Following pixel labeling with the universal texton library, images are quantized into superpixels and co-segmented using a DP clustering algorithm. The segmentation results for both texton library selection criteria are contrasted and compared for a labeled set of SAS images with various discernable textures.
