A new fuzzy-based multiscale edge detection technique is presented. The proposed approach achieves optimal edge detection using the wavelet decomposition of the original signal followed by a novel fuzzy-based decision technique that is applied across the scales. Results indicate a significant improvement in locating edges compared to other multiscale approaches.
