1 September 2002 Simple nonlinear dual-window operator for edge detection
Author Affiliations +
We propose a nonlinear edge detection technique based on a two-concentric-circular-window operator. We perform a preliminary selection of edge candidates using a standard gradient and use the dualwindow operator to reveal edges as zero-crossing points of a simple difference function depending only on the minimum and maximum values in the two windows. Comparisons with other well-established techniques are reported in terms of visual appearance and computational efficiency. They show that detected edges are surely comparable with Canny's and Laplacian of Gaussian algorithms, with a noteworthy reduction in terms of computational load.
