This paper reports a comprehensive study on an image processing and feature extraction tool particularly for 3-D range image applications in manufacturing processes. The library of the algorithms developed in this study is formatted into an easy-to-use imaging tool that consists of many useful algorithms and functions. The objective of this study is to produce a library of 3-D range imaging algorithms that can effectively employ imaging and vision techniques and be applied to industrial… Expand

Shape Representation and Retrieval Using Radial Basis Probabilistic Neural Networks
Summary This paper presents a 2D shape retrieval system using moment invariants based on a representation of image boundary of the shape objects. The original binary image is transformed into aExpand
The “thousand words” problem: Summarizing multi-dimensional data
Various approaches to solving the extraction and interpretation of useful information in the application of multi-dimensional sensing to process monitoring and control are discussed using examples from the fields of particle characterization, image processing, and process tomography. Expand


Segmentation through Variable-Order Surface Fitting

  • 1988
A piecewise-smooth surface model for image data that possesses surface coherence properties is used to develop an algorithm that simultaneously segments a large class of images into regions of arbitrary shape and approximates image data with bivariate functions so that it is possible to compute a complete, noiseless image reconstruction based on the extracted functions and regions.

CAD-Based Computer Vision: From CAD Models to Relational Graphs
It is argued that a system to infer automatically a model appropriate for vision tasks from the manufacturing model is needed to efficiently create a large database (more than 100 objects) of 3-D models to evaluate matching strategies. Expand
CAD-based computer vision: from CAD models to relational graphs
The authors have developed a system which uses 3-D object descriptions created on a commercial CAD system and expressed in the industry-standard IGES form, and performs geometric inferencing to object a relational graph representation of the object which can be stored in a database of models of object recognition.

  • 1980
The theory of edge detection explains several basic psychophysical findings, and the operation of forming oriented zero-crossing segments from the output of centre-surround ∇2G filters acting on the image forms the basis for a physiological model of simple cells. Expand
A facet model for image data
Abstract Image processing algorithms implicitly or explicitly assume an idealized form for the image data on which they operate. The degree to which the observed data meets the assumed idealized formExpand
