Paper Abstract

Early vision processing involves segmenting and eliminating/minimizing extrinsic variations in an image. Tradition segmentation algorithms use a single threshold to reduce image data to the regions important to the vision system. A single threshold rarely gives good segmentation results over an entire image because it may reject too many of the objects as belonging to the background or may accept too much of the background as belonging to the objects. This paper presents a segmentation method that uses multiple thresholds for partitioning an image into objects and background. The segmentation process is a gradient approach whereby the multiple (or adaptable) thresholds are calculated from discriminant structural feature values.
