Sonar Image Registration Based on Improved PSO and Powell Hybrid Algorithm
In order to further improve the accuracy of the sonar image registration, a novel hybrid algorithm was proposed. It proposed the normalized mutual information as similar estimation, drawn on multi-resolution data structure based on wavelet transform, a low precision solution was solved by improved PSO algorithm, which has strong global search capability, firstly and then a high precision solution was acquired by Powell method, which has strong local search capability. The hybrid algorithm is effective to overcome the fall of local maximum mutual information function; it also improves solution’s precision. Since the hybrid algorithm is the initial point of pre-treatment, an effective solution to the Powell method dependence on the initial point. Experiments reveal that the hybrid algorithm is efficiency and effectiveness.
