Physic Based Classification for Color Images

Laurent Hussenet &
Luc Brun.

This paper presents a new method for segmenting color images into regions composed of an unique material. This method is based on a spectral reflection model and a characterization of the camera used for acquisitions. The study of these crucial points of the acquisition process allows us to define expressions which remain constants for all pixels's color corresponding to a same material. These constants are then used in the color segmentation process.
