Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new texture classification method. Previously, for texture analysis and classification, the gray tone co-occurrence matrix was adopted most frequently. However, due to the complexity in its derivation process, it is not the best choice if the processing time is a major concern. In this work, we propose a more compact matrix called C-matrix to solve the above problem. The proposed C-matrix characterizes both qualitative and quantitative properties between each pixel and its neighbors in an image. Based on this matrix, a set of statistical features can be defined. These features are then fed into a trained fuzzy neural network for texture classification. Experimental results based on two ground surface images are reported to corroborate the proposed theory.
