Robust Defect Segmentation in Woven Fabrics

  title={Robust Defect Segmentation in Woven Fabrics},
  author={Hamed Sari-Sarraf and James S. Goddard},
This paper describes a robust segmentation algorithm for the detection and localization of woven fabric defects. The essence of the presented segmentation algorithm is the localization of those events (i.e., defects) in the input images that disrupt the global homogeneity of the background texture. To this end, preprocessing modules, based on the wavelet transform and edge fusion, are employed with the objective of attenuating the background texture and accentuating the defects. Then, texture… CONTINUE READING
