Signal Parameter Estimation and Measurement. Object Localization

  • Leonid Yaroslavsky


Measurement of physical parameters of objects is one of the most fundamental tasks in image processing. It is required in many applications. Typical examples are measuring the number of objects, their orientations, dimensions and coordinates. A special case of this problem is also object recognition when it is required to determine object index in the list of possible objects. Usually measurement devices and algorithms are designed for the use for arbitrary images from multitude of images generated by image or hologram sensors. Therefore the most appropriate approach to solving this problem is statistical one.
