MULTI-RESOLUTION APPROACH FOR FINE STRUCTURE EXTRACTION - Application and Validation on Road Images

Nicolas Coudray, Argyro Karathanou, Sylvie Chambon

Abstract

In the context of fine structure extraction, this paper presents a new method based on multi-resolution segmentation applied for the detection of road cracks. A method already developed to detected low-contrasted biological membranes has been adapted to detect cracks on images: crack features are defined as heterogeneities rather than transitions of closed regions characterizing the membranes. This new methodology is quantitatively validated on reference segmentations and compared to an adapted filtering and Markovian modelling algorithm.
