Another non-linear operation on the pixels in the box around the input pixel is to test whether they match a reference shape. This is a very powerful and useful approach to cleaning up noisy binary images known as mathematical morphology and objects in the image are treated according to their compatibility with a structuring element.

Let’s recap the important points about spatial operators. Linear operators can be used to smooth images and determine gradients. Template matching can be used to find a face in a crowd. Non-linear operators such as rank filters can be used for noise removal, and mathematical morphology treats shapes according to their compatibility with a structuring […]
So far we have taken a linear combination of pixels in the box around the input pixel, but non-linear operations like sorting and ranking the pixel values also prove to be very useful. We look at the median filter which is much better at removing salt and pepper noise from image than simple smoothing.
A color camera has many similarities to the human eye. Instead of three types of cone cells a uniform silicon sensor uses a pattern of three color filters known as a Bayer filter.
Let’s recap the important points from the topics we have covered about light, wavelength, spectrums, light sources, reflection, reflectance functions, cone cells, tristimulus and chromaticity space.
Mathematical morphology comprises operations such as erosion, dilation, opening and closing. Let’s look at how we can use different shaped structuring elements to solve complex problems.
In mathematical morphology the values of the structuring element were either zero or one. The hit and miss transform extends this to also include a ‘don’t care’ value. We can use this transform to solve complex problems like finding the skeleton of an object or the intersection point of lines.
Let’s recap the important points from the topics we have covered in advanced image processing.
We will extend our coverage of image processing. We will some previously discussed techniques in more depth, and introduce some additional ones.
A more efficient trajectory has a trapezoidal velocity profile.
