Approaches to the Feather Stain Detection and Segmentation
Extraction of feather defects is difficult because of their complicated and diversified characteristics. It is proposed that feather stain defects be extracted in HSI color space according to color characters of different types of feather defects. The improved variational level set method is adopted to locate and segment the feather stains on that basis. Experiment results show that the proposed methods can extract feather stains effectively and segment them accurately.
