Paper Abstract

Edge detection is one of the most fundamental and important research fields in computer vision and image processing. This paper proposed a novel method, which focuses on edge fragments, not on individual pixels. The stability of each edge fragment, represented by the relative change of the skeleton over a given range of threshold, was analyzed to select the stable ones. The result of detection is a bunch of stable edge fragments in a forest structure, and the synthesis of them gives a single edge image. Experiments show that it is comparable with popular detectors in edge detection tasks, and it has got many particular advantages, like its stableness and fragment structure.
