Yet Another Method for Image Segmentation based on Histograms and Heuristics*

Authors: Horia-Nicolai L. Teodorescu, Mariana Rusu
Keywords: image processing, segmentation, mixed statistical-heuristic method, segmentation similarity index.


We introduce a method for image segmentation that requires little computations, yet providing comparable results to other methods. While the proposed method resembles to the known ones based on histograms, it is still different in the use of the gray level distribution. When to the basic procedure we add several heuristic rules, the method produces results that, in some cases, may outperform the results produced by the known methods. The paper reports preliminary results. More details on the method, improvements, and results will be presented in a future paper.
