Abstract
Region segmentation provides a valid information check point and background knowledge for higher level machine vision tasks that rely on the fundamental image processing and analysis results such as segmentations. Our study of segmenting regions of interest on range images shows that knowing local surface geometries becomes the key to successfully solving segmentation problems. In this paper, three topics are presented and the experiments are shown: (1) segmentation based on morphological watershed algorithm; (2) a multiscale approach using morphology; and (3) a segmentation method based on surface normals. The examples used in this study are from the range images taken by a laser radar imager. The applications are focused in the area of manufacturing automation and inspection.
