Texture Defect Detection Using Gabor Filters


Article Preview

This paper aims at investigating a method for tackling the problem of automated fabric defect detection. A new scheme for defect detection using Gabor filters was proposed. In the experiment, texture features is extracted using Gabor filters. The proposed method would automatically segment defects from the regular texture. The experimental results showed the effectiveness of the proposed detection scheme.
