Compressed sensing has been widely researched since the beginning of 2000s. Although there are several well-known signal recovery algorithms, its reconstruction noise cannot be avoided completely, thus requiring good filters to remove the noise in the reconstructing process. Since each different filter has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on specific reconstruction algorithm, the reconstruction performance can be varied according to the choice of filter. This paper proposes an inner filter selection method according to the sampling rate and the property of image to be sensed.
