In this paper, the application of the fuzzy transforms of the zero degree (F 0-transform) and of the first degree (F 1-transform) to the image registration is demonstrated. The main idea is to use only one technique (F-transform generally) to solve various tasks of the image registration. The F 1-transform is used for an extraction of feature points in edge detection step. The correspondence between the feature points in two images is obtained by the image similarity algorithm based on the F 0-transform. Then, the shift vector for corresponding corners is computed, and by the image fusion algorithm, the final image is created.
