Detecting and localizing edges composed of steps, peaks and roofs

  title={Detecting and localizing edges composed of steps, peaks and roofs},
  author={Pietro Perona and Jitendra Malik},
It is well known that the projection of depth or orientation discontinuities in a physical scene results in image intensity edges which are not ideal step edges but are more typically a combination of steps, peak and roof profiles. However most edge detection schemes ignore the composite nature of these edges, resulting in systematic errors in detection and localization. We address the problem of detecting and localizing these edges, while at the same time also solving the problem of false… CONTINUE READING
