An Improved Algorithm of Measuring Diameter of Wool and Cashmere based on the Medial Axis
Fiber diameter is one of the most important identification indexes in distinguishing wool and cashmere. After analyzing shortcomings of existing measurement methods of the fiber diameter, an improved algorithm of measuring the diameter, in which the medial axis was extracted through the fiber morphology, was proposed. Experimental results show that this fiber diameter extraction algorithm achieves higher reliability and accuracy.
