Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 719)


A new edge detection scheme based on image structural model is described. Developed method for edge extraction allows an explicit quality control during the edge detection and is in the same time not very computationaly expensive. It is used in structure — adaptive algorithms for image binary segmentation in order to solve the problem of defect detection in microelectronics or to perform visual measurements with subpixel accuracy.
