This paper presents a modified FIRE algorithm capable of performing robust edge detection on full colour images. The colour FIRE algorithm is demonstrated on the well known Lena image and comparisons are made with existing edge detection methods. The main application of the colour FIRE presented here is that of robot vision, in particular the application to robot design for the puck collect competition held annually in Vienna, Austria. We show the colour FIRE algorithm to be useful in a robot…

Design of a Flexible and Project Based Postgraduate Module on Applied Computational Intelligence: A Case Study

The background to the module, ideas for flexible design of such modules, some examples of the students’ assignment work and a discussion of the perceived value of the Applied Computational Intelligence module are presented.



Fuzzy Logic-Based Image Processing Using Graphics Processor Units

A 126 time speed improvement can be made to fuzzy edge extraction making its processing real-time, and with a computational speed improvement of over two orders of magnitude, more time can be allocated to higher level computer vision algorithms.

A Computational Approach to Edge Detection

There is a natural uncertainty principle between detection and localization performance, which are the two main goals, and with this principle a single operator shape is derived which is optimal at any scale.

  • 1994
It is shown how FIRE operators can be designed in order to comply with the following two requirements: 1) extraction of edges from a noiseless image by means of the simplest possible rule-base; 2) extraction from a noisy image.

A Fast Geometric Method for Defuzzification of Type-2 Fuzzy Sets

A new method for assessing the accuracy of the membership function of a type-2 fuzzy set and the differences between the new approach and type-reduction are discussed, identifying the origin of this massive improvement in execution speed.
