|Structuring Element Representation of an Image and Its Applications
International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems, vol. 2, no. 4, pp.509-515, 2004
Abstract : In this paper we present the linear combination of a fuzzy opening and closing filter with locally adaptive structuring elements that can preserve the geometrical features of an image. Based on the adaptation algorithm of linear combination of the fuzzy opening and closing filter, the optimal structuring element for image representation is obtained. The optimal structuring element is an indicator of the shape and direction of an object’s image, which is useful in filtering, multi resolution, segmentation, and recognition of an image.
