The Visual Quality Recognition of Nonwovens Using a Novel Wavelet Based Contourlet Transform
In this paper, a novel wavelet based contourlet transform for texture extraction is presented. In the texture analysis section, we propose a novel wavelet based contourlet transform, which can be considered as a simplified but more sufficient for texture analysis for nonwoven image compared with version of the one introduced by Eslami in theory view. In experiment, nonwoven images of five different visual quality grades, 125 of each grade, are decomposed using wavelet based contourlet transform with ‘PKVA’ filter as the default filter of Laplacian Pyramid (LP) and Directional Filter Bank (DFB) at 3 levels and two energy-based features, norm-1 L1 and norm-2 L2, are calculated from the wavelet coefficients at the first level and contourlet coefficients of each high frequency subband at different levels and directions to train and test SVM. When the nonwoven images are decomposed at 3 levels and 16 L1s are extracted, with 500 samples to train the SVM, the average recognition accuracy of test set is 98.4%, which is superior to the comparative method using wavelet texture analysis.
