Paper Abstract

This paper presents an image segmentation method for stacked objects using Region-Scalable Fitting (RSF) and Spatial Kernel Fuzzy-C-Means (SKFCM) based on depth images. Firstly, RSF is used to detect contours of the objects’ area. Then, it can be judged whether there are stacked objects in each contour area by image histogram . For stacked objects, SKFCM algorithm is utilized for segmenting the stacked objects. Unlike the method based on RGB images, the proposed method is insensitive to background, texture and illumination due to the property of depth images that only contains depth information. Besides, the proposed method can effectively segment each object in the case of objects stacked, and determine the order of stacking which can be used for picking up by manipulator arm. The proposed method has been tested on different scenes with objects stacked. Experimental results have shown the effectiveness of the proposed method in segmenting stacked objects.
