Edge Drawing (ED) is an edge detection method that works by computing a set of anchor points, which are most likely to be edge elements, and linking them with a predefined set of rules which we call smart routing. ED can thus obtain one-pixel wide, contiguous and smooth edges in real-time. In most cases, obtaining the edges in segment form (i.e. blob of connected edgels) is desired. Because edge segments also include the connectivity information among the pixels, they contain useful features… CONTINUE READING
