Abstract
In this paper, a new approach to objectively assess the performance of image fusion algorithms is proposed. It is based on the quaternion representation for the structural information of color images. Quaternions are used to encode the pixels of a color image into a quaternion matrix. Local variance of the luminance layer of color image is taken as the real part of a quaternion, then the three RGB channels of the color image are encoded into the three imaginary parts of the quaternion. The angle between the singular value feature vectors of the quaternion matrices corresponding to the source image and the fused image is used to measure the structural similarity of them. Different weight is given to the source images by using variance. The experiment results show that the proposed assessment method is consistent with the HVS. The color information of a color image can be fully used by this method. It can give an accurate assessment result for each fusion algorithm by using the source images and the fused image.
