Investigation of Pattern Recognition Techniques Using Mathematical Morphology

People involved:

* Dr. John Rees (now Faculty Director at Staffordshire University) * Prof. Bryan Jones

Funding: University of Glamorgan
Start date: 1989, PhD project successfully completed 1994

Summary of Research

Morphological operators are used widely for enhancing and analysing images. An operatorwas defined which allows conditional erosion and dilation to be performed on binary and grey level images. The operators were used to extract features, to segment images and to recognise shapes.
