Multiscale fuzzy reasoning (MFR) for automatic object extraction

Sheikh Akbari, A. and Soraghan, J.J. (2005) Multiscale fuzzy reasoning (MFR) for automatic object extraction. Pattern Recognition Letters, 26 (1). pp. 77-81. ISSN 0167-8655

A new Multiscale Fuzzy Reasoning (MFR) based image-processing technique for automatic object extraction is described. MFR utilizes skewed versions of an input frame wherein each skewed frame is processed independently using fuzzy reasoning. MFR achieves optimal edge detection using the wavelet decomposition followed by a novel fuzzy based decision technique. The processed frames are de-skewed and combined using a fuzzy union operation to extract the objects.
