M. Rufus Blas, M. Agrawal, A. Sundaresan and K. Konolige, “Fast color/texture segmentation for outdoor robots,” 2008 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2008, pp. 4078-4085, doi: 10.1109/IROS.2008.4651086.
We present a fast integrated approach for online segmentation of images for outdoor robots. A compact color and texture descriptor has been developed to describe local color and texture variations in an image. This descriptor is then used in a two-stage fast clustering framework using K-means to perform online segmentation of natural images. We present results of applying our descriptor for segmenting a synthetic image and compare it against other state-of-the-art descriptors. We also apply our segmentation algorithm to the task of detecting[…]
