A Scan-Line-Based Hole Filling Algorithm for Vehicle Recognition
The existence of holes in vehicle object makes it difficult to extract the feature. existing hole-filling method are capable of filling holes on small and smooth regions of a object, for large holes whit complex boundaries or in curved region in vehicle object, they may not obtain the satisfactory results. For resolving this problem, a novel hole-filling algorithm based on horizontal scan line was proposed to fill arbitrary holes in vehicle object obtained from vehicle image. Experiments show that the algorithm has good performance and efficiency, and in the filling processing, the feature of the area and perimeter of an object can be obtained at the same time.
