Paper Abstract

A statistical approach to classification of surfaces based on the spatial intensity distribution of reflected light is proposed. In this approach, a surface is modelled as a collection of randomly oriented mirror-like micro-facets which give rise to a spatial intensity distribution of reflected light. A correlation matrix is formulated based on the co-occurrence of two given reflected intensities at points separated by a given angular distance. Features based on this matrix are proposed, and two classification schemes based on maximum-likelihood and nearest neighbor decision rules are implemented on these features. Experimental results for the classification schemes are presented for a variety of sample surfaces such as paper, cloth, felt, cork, etc. Success rates of
