Paper Abstract

Many advance image processing, like segmentation and recognition, are based on contour extraction which usually lack of ability to allocate edge precisely in the image of heavy noise with low computation burden. For such problem, in this paper, we proposed a new approach of edge detection based on pyramid-structure wavelet transform. In order to suppress noise and keep good continuity of edge, the proposed edge representation considered both inter-correlations across the multi-scales and intra-correlations within the single-scale. The former one is described by point-wise singularity. The later one is described by the magnitude and ratio of wavelet coefficients in different sub-bands. Based on such edge modeling, the edge point allocation is then complemented in wavelet domain by synthesizing the edge information in multi-scales. The experimental results shows that our approaches achieve the pixel-level edge detection with strong resistant against noise due to scattering in water.
