ABSTRACT Object counting is a challenging problem in image processing. It is routinely carried out in different areas of industries, research institutes, laboratories, agriculture industries among others. Object counting is important for quantitative analysis that

An Efficient Approach for Number Plate Extraction from Vehicles Image under Image Processing
free download

ABSTRACT Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is an image-processing technology and an important field of research that identifies vehicles by their number plates in which the number plate information is extracted from vehicle's image or from sequence of images

Role of Mathematical Morphology in Digital Image Processing: A Review
free download

ABSTRACT Image processing is a method to convert an image into digital form by performing operations on it for getting an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it. It is a type of signal distribution in which input is image like video frame or photograph and

DESIGN OF MULTILEVEL TWO DIMENSIONAL-DISCRETE WAVELET TRANSFORM FORIMAGE PROCESSING APPLICATIONS
free download

ABSTRACT The design of multilevel two dimensional-discrete wavelet transform (2D-DWT) with novel Vedic multiplier is presented. To design a 2D-DWT, digital finite impulse response (FIR) filter is used to increase the image resolution and eliminate the unwanted noise

An Adept Method of Tumor Classification using Image Processing
free download

ABSTRACT Characterization of a brain tumor has an undoubted importance from the stages of initiations, in the medical ground. Further studies over the growth and accompanying attributes such as intensity, texture, shape has considerable influences over the health of

Vehicle Recognition at Night Based on Tail LightDetection Using Image Processing
free download

ABSTRACT Automatic recognition of vehicles in front can be used as a component of systems for forward collisions prevention. When driving in dark conditions, vehicles in front are generally visible by their back lights. Present an algorithm that detects vehicles at night

Application of Image Processing Methods in analyzing microstructure of a material
free download

ABSTRACT The 'microstructure'is a term which is used to describe the appearance of the material on the nm-cm length scale. The microstructure features such as size of the grain, grain boundary morphology, and texture of grains of a given material may vary greatly

Scenario Approach for Image Processing in Smart City
free download

1ABSTRACT Modern city is described by fast change of a situations and large volume of available data about it. One of principal data types are images (satellite pictures, video from surveillance cameras, etc.). Fast manual analysis of such data is often complicated or

Cost Effective Object Recognition and Sorting Robot Using Embedded Image ProcessingTechniques
free download

ABSTRACT This paper presents an application to sort objects based on its colour using a robotic arm. In many small scale industries, the major obstacle faced is shortage of time and laborers to efficiently sort and pack the products. This hurdle can be overcome by using

Design and Development of Software for the Implementation of Image Processing Approach for Leaf Area Measurement
free download

ABSTRACT Several commercial softwares are available for plant leaf area measurement. But no freeware was available for leaf area calculation. This study proposed a freeware for calculating the plant leaf area. It was hypothesized that if the error between the calculated

Role of Active Contour in Image Processing
