Analysis and Synthesis of Signals and Images


A filtration algorithm is proposed for detecting objects in images obtained by means of microscanning. An algorithm for calculating the filter for an object with a known shape is presented. The influence of changes in the object shape induced by a subpixel displacement of the object with respect to the center of the photosensitive cell on the filtration results is studied. An approach to choosing the filter shape with allowance for object shape changes is tested. Results of numerical simulations are reported.
