Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new edge detection method for color images, based on the Bhattacharyya distance with adjustable block space. First, the Wiener filter was used to remove the noise as pre-processing. To calculate the Bhattacharyya distance, a pair of blocks were extracted for each pixel. To detect subtle edges, we adjusted the block space. The mean vector and covariance matrix were computed from each block. Using the mean vectors and covariance matrices, we computed the Bhattacharyya distance, which was used to detect edges. By adjusting the block space, we were able to detect weak edges, which other edge detections failed to detect. Experimental results show promising results compared to some existing edge detection methods.
