Abstract
In this paper a parallel mode for texture segmentation is presented. The model is built on a basic texture segmentation model. In the basic model, a bank of filters, Gabor filters and asymmetric Gabor filters, are used to describe texture properties in both frequency and in spacial domains. Since there is much information in texture image, detecting texture boundaries will take a long time. In the parallel model, the operations of filtering image are implemented in parallel by different processors. Since the operations are independent and almost the same, the speedup should be very high. The examples show that the parallel model is very effective for the texture segmentation operation.
