A locally adaptive thresholding algorithm, concerning the extraction of targets from a given field of background, is proposed. Conventional histogram-based or global-type methods are deficient in detecting small targets of possibly low contrast as well. The present research is notable for solving the mentioned problems by introducing (1) shape connectivity measure based on co-occurrence statistics for threshold evaluation; and (2) no-target identification procedure for modeling a local… Expand

Adaptive Stochastic Resonance in Color Object Segmentation
TLDR
It is shown that addition of a small amount of noise can improve the accuracy of such color object segmentation and that this "stochastic resonance" or SR effect does occur for various performance indices that measure how well an object is segmented from the background. Expand
