Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a global threshold selection method to do infrared image segmentation, which uses both gray-level distribution and spatial information, namely, two-dimensional OTSU method (2D OTSU). It often gets better anti-noise performance. What's more, taking consideration of the complexity of its computation, we introduce a new heuristic optimization algorithm, called the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm to search the result. So an algorithm for PSO-based 2D Otsu segmentation is proposed. The experiments of segmentation the infrared images are illustrated to show that the proposed method can get ideal segmentation result with less computation cost.
