Paper Abstract

An adaptive approach to small object segmentation based on Genetic Algorithms is proposed. A new parameter scale of the subject area's percentage is introduced in this method, which can overcome the P-tile method's defect of requiring the exact percentage of an object area, and meanwhile makes effective use of the small object's character. Genetic Algorithm forms the skeleton of the new approach, which can dynamically locate the optical threshold in the search space. The proposed algorithm can be extended to segment those images with object of arbitrary size by simply changing the set of the new parameter. Experiment results indicate that the proposed algorithm performs better segmentation quality and takes less computational time than conventional Otsu method.
