Mathematical morphology, "algebra of shape", is used in many image processing applications including machine vision recognition, visually guided robot vision systems, biomedical image processing, and low-level vision problems. The fact that mathematical morphology deals with shape characteristics of an image makes it a tool for object recognition, defect detection, and feature extraction. The analogy between the morphological operations for shape and the convolution operations for signals suggests the dominance of mathematical morphology in the image processing applications related to shape, especially in machine vision.
