Paper Abstract

A rule-based expert system is being developed to segment and label the major elements in digitized images of simple road scenes. The system acts on a set of uniform regions, generated by the split-and-merge algorithm, which may be regarded dS a non-standard primal sketch. Simple descriptors attached to regions and to boundaries between regions are referenced by the rule base, which incorporates general Knowledge of the typical benavior of the split-and-merge algorithm, as well as specific knowledge of the scene domain. The rules merge oversegmented regions to form an essentially correct description of the scene. The system is intended to investigate tne limits of applicability of methods which do riot introduce an explicit tnree-dimensional (3D) representation
