In this paper we present an application of statistical pattern recognition for segmentation of backscatter images (BSE) in product analysis of laundry detergents. Currently, application experts segment BSE images interactively which is both time consuming and expert dependent. We present a new, automatic, procedure for supervised BSE segmenta-tion which is(More)
Segmentation methods, combining spectral and spatial information, are essential for analysis of multi-spectral images. In this article, we propose such a method based on statistical pattern recognition algorithms and a combined classifier approach. A set of experiments is presented with multi-spectral images of detergent laundry powders acquired by imaging(More)
Feature selection is an important tool reducing necessary feature acquisition time in some applications. Standard methods, proposed in the literature, do not cope with the measurement cost issue. Including the measurement cost into the feature selection process is difficult when features are grouped together due to the implementation. If one feature from a(More)
Morphological sieves are capable of classifying objects in images according to their size. They yield a granulometry, which describes the imaged structure. The discrete sieve has some disadvantages that its continuous-domain counterpart does not have: sampled disks (used as isotropic structuring elements) are rather anisotropic, especially at small scales,(More)
