A Comparison of Three Rough Surface Classifiers

G McGunnigle and M J Chantler

In this paper texture analysis techniques are used to segment rough surfaces into regions of homogeneous texture. The performance of three rough surface classifiers was assessed and compared. The classifiers differ in their discrimination as well as their input and computational requirements. Experiments were used to identify the failure modes of the classifiers and to identify which classifier is best suited to a particular task. A series of guidelines for the choice of classifier are presented and justified.
