A Non-Maxima Suppression Method for Edge Detection with Sub-Pixel Accuracy

  title={A Non-Maxima Suppression Method for Edge Detection with Sub-Pixel Accuracy},
  author={Frederic Devernay},
In this article we present a two dimensional edge detector which gives the edge position in an image with a sub-pixel accuracy. The method presented here gives an excellent accuracy (the position bias mean is almost zero and the standard deviation is less than one tenth of a pixel) with a low computational cost, and its implementation is very simple since it is derivated from the well-known Non-Maxima Suppression method [2, 4]. We also justify the method by showing that it gives the exact… CONTINUE READING
