A new color edge detector based on vector differences is proposed. The basic technique gives as its output the maximum distance between the vectors within a mask. When applied to scalarvalued images, the method reduces to the classic mor phological gradient. The technique is relatively computationally efficient and can also be readily applied to other vectorvalued images. To improve the performance in the presence of noise, a novel pairwise outlier rejection scheme is employed. A
quantitative evaluation
using Pratt's
figure of merit
shows the new technique to outperform other recently proposed color edge detectors. In addition, application to real images demonstrates the approach to be highly effective despite its low complexity. Index Terms—Color image processing, edge detection, morpho logical operations.
