External Force Modeling of Snakes using DWT for Texture Object Segmentation

  title={External Force Modeling of Snakes using DWT for Texture Object Segmentation},
  author={Surya Prakash},
Snakes, also known as active contours are extensively used in computer vision and image understanding applications. They are energy minimizing deformable contours that converges at the boundary of an object in an image. Deformation in contour is caused due to internal and external forces acting on it. Internal force is derived from the contour itself and external force is invoked from the image. Traditional active contours proposed by Kass et al. only work for the normal intensity images and… CONTINUE READING
