A novel double-threshold pulse coupled neural networks (DT-PCNN) is proposed and applied to shadow detection. It attempts to reduce the false detection of shadows in a single image where the hue and brightness of some non-shadow regions are similar to or even lower than those of shadows. Shadows whose intensity and hue fall in between those of the scene and objectives are often viewed as non-shadows by the single dynamic threshold of PCNN. Moreover, entities with similar or darker hue and… CONTINUE READING
