APPLICATION OF SELF-QUOTIENT ε- FILTER TO IMPULSE NOISE CORRUPTED IMAGE

Mitsuharu Matsumoto

Abstract

This paper introduces an application of self-quotient ε-filter (SQEF) to impulse noise corrupted images. SQEF is an improved self-quotient filter (SQF) to extract the image feature from noise corrupted image. Although SQF is a simple nonlinear filter to extract the feature from the image, it cannot extract the feature from the noise corrupted image. On the other hand, SQEF can extract the feature not only when it is applied to the clear image but also when it is applied to the noise corrupted image. In this paper, we especially focus on feature extraction from impulse noise corrupted image, and investigate the effectiveness of self-quotient ε-filter to impulse noise corrupted images.
