Abstract
An application of the theory of fuzzy sets to detect and measure convex objects in an image is described. Geometric measurements involving the concept of the perimeter of a fuzzy set are compared to measurements using moment parameters of the membership function. The concept of the perimeter of fuzzy sets offers a way to take geometric measurements from a scene without having to segment it. A method to compute the perimeter of a convex fuzzy set was proposed by Rosenfeld [1]. For the special case of elliptically shaped convex objects an alternative formula is proposed. In this method the fuzzy set is approximated by a crisp set of elliptic shape which has same area and second order moments. The computation of the membership function plays a key role in this theory. We use a fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm to compute the membership function. The method is tested on real images.
