Canny Edge Detection Auto Thresholding

In the example I gave in “Interfacing IPP with Magick++“, I illustrated how to use Intel’s Integrated Performance Primitives (IPP) to perform edge detection. One issue with Canny edge detection algorithm is that we need to specify a high threshold and a low threshold. How to select those threshold values affect the quality of the detected edge greatly. And in my previous example, the threshold values were chosen manually. In this blog post, I will examine a couple of simple methods that can be used to automatically determine the threshold values.

Interfacing IPP with Magick++

Intel’s Integrated Performance Primitives (IPP) is a low level C++ library. It provides routines that are highly optimized on Intel processors. I recently started using it because its vast speed advantage in signal and image processing applications. Continue reading ‘Interfacing IPP with Magick++’ »
