Paper Abstract

Techniques and analyses for improving the signal-to-noise performance of edge detectors are presented. A general edge detection method is developed as a result of the noise analysis, and a wide class of edge detectors is shown to be insensitive to edge orientation. For this class, an optimal design with respect to noise statistics is found and a comparison made between many common edge operators. Edge and noise models characteristic of typical images are presented and used in the analysis of these edge detectors.
