A Classified and Comparative Study of Edge Detection Algorithms

  title={A Classified and Comparative Study of Edge Detection Algorithms},
  author={Mohsen Sharifi and Mahmood Fathy and Maryam Tayefeh Mahmoudi},
Since edge detection is in the forefront of image processing for object detection, it is crucial to have a good understanding of edge detection algorithms. This paper introduces a new classification of most important and commonly used edge detection algorithms, namely ISEF, Canny, Marr-Hildreth, Sobel, Kirsch, Lapla1 and Lapla2. Five categories are included in our classification, and then advantages and disadvantages of some available algorithms within this category are discussed. A… CONTINUE READING
