Bark Classification Based on Gabor Filter Features Using RBPNN Neural Network
This paper proposed a new method of extracting texture features based on Gabor wavelet. In addition, the application of these features for bark classification applying radial basis probabilistic network (RBPNN) has been introduced. In this method, the bark texture feature is firstly extracted by filtering the image with different orientations and scales filters, then the mean and standard deviation of the image output are computed, the image which have been filtered in the frequency domain. Finally, the obtained Gabor feature vectors are fed up into RBPNN for classification. Experimental results show that, first, features extracted using the proposed approach can be used for bark texture classification. Second, compared with radial basis function neural network (RBFNN), the RBPNN achieves higher recognition rate and better classification efficiency when the feature vectors have low-dimensions.
