Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new filtering scheme for the removal of impulsive noise in color images. It is based on estimating the probability density function for color pixels in a filter window by means of the kernel density estimation method. A quantitative comparison of the proposed filter with the vector median filter shows its excellent ability to reduce noise while simultaneously preserving fine image details.
