Boundary Detection from Bookshelf Image Based on Model Fitting

  title={Boundary Detection from Bookshelf Image Based on Model Fitting},
  author={Eiji Taira and Seiichi Uchida and Hiroaki Sakoe},
Several systems based on bookshelf image analysis have been studied for automating bookshelf inspection in libraries and bookstores. In conventional systems, book boundaries are firstly detected for extracting each individual book by using some popular line detection technique, such as Hough transformation. Their detection accuracies, however, are sometimes insufficient. In this paper, we propose a model-based book boundary detection technique for higher detection accuracy. The model is… CONTINUE READING
