Paper Abstract

A pixel-level image fusion scheme based on Laplacian pyramid decomposition is presented. The basic idea is to perform a Laplacian pyramid decomposition of each source image first, then the Laplacian pyramid of the fused image is constructed using region-based weighted operators according to different fusion rules, finally the fused image is obtained by taking inverse pyramid transform. Both visual quality (regarded as contrast and presence of fine details) and absence of impairments or artifacts are concerned in our method. This approach has been successfully used in image fusion. The experimental results show that the fusion scheme is effectual and the fused images are more suitable for human visual or machine perception.
