Author Affiliations +
A simple and fast multi-channel filtering algorithm is presented in the paper for texture segmentation. This algorithm requires only a small number of channels and automatically determines the channel parameters by analysis of the Fourier power spectrum. Also it does not need a priori knowledge about the type and number of textures occurring in the input images. We can gain categories number by the square-error plot of different clusters. It does not involve any human intervention. The algorithm is tested extensively with a variety of Brodatz's textures and real textures. The segmentation results validate the practicability of this algorithm.
