Object detection in images is a fundamental task in many image analysis applications. Existing methods for low-level object detection always perform the colorsimilarity analyses in the 2D image space. However, the crowded edges of different objects make the detection complex and error-prone. This paper proposes to detect objects in a new edge color distribution space (ECDS) rather than in the image space. In the 3D ECDS, the edges of different objects are segregated and the spatial relation of… CONTINUE READING
