Abstract.

This paper presents a color object recognition scheme which proceeds in three sequential steps: segmentation, features extraction and classification. We mainly focus on the first and the third steps here. A color watershed using global and local criteria is first described. A color contrast value is defined to select the best color space for segmenting color objects. Then, an architecture of binary neural networks is described. Its properties relies on the simplification of the recognition problem, leading to a noticeable increase in the classification rate. We conclude with the abilities of such a recognition scheme and present an automated cell sorting system.

Key words: Morphology - Color - Segmentation - Classification - Microscopy
