Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 103)


This chapter describes the edge segmentation and matching technique that was developed to support the canonical-views modelling method described in Chapter 4. Specifically, Section 1 presents the edge segmentation algorithm and Section 2 presents the matching algorithm. The Canny edge detector was used for initial edge extraction. The methods here have been developed specifically to support extraction and matching for a ground-based mobile robot.
