Paper Abstract

One of the major problems in scene analysis is segmentation of a scene. Various approaches to segmentation use information about edges and/or proximity in pixel values as a basis for decomposition of the picture. In this paper the information that can be obtained regarding the material elements present in the scene is used as the basis for segmentation. Comparison of the results with the other known techniques is also given. A set of probabilities of detection based on various information about materials is then derived.
