Standard techniques for segmenting color images are based on finding normalized RGB discontinuities, color histogramming, or clustering techniques in RGB or CIE color spaces. The use of the psychophysical variable hue in HSI space has not been popular due to its numerical instability at low saturations. In this article, we propose the use of a simplified hue description suitable for implementation in analog VLSI. We demonstrate that if theintegrated white condition holds, hue is invariant to… Expand

Analysis of colour channel coupling from a physics-based viewpoint: Application to colour edge detection
TLDR
A compatibility relationship stems from this geometric interpretation, which allows checking at a very low cost whether two pixels correspond to the same scene reflectance or not, and an edge detector based on the use of the previous relationship is presented as an example of application. Expand
