  • Objective Assessment of Multiresolution Image Fusion Algorithms for Context Enhancement in Night Vision: A Comparative Study

    Comparison of image processing techniques is critically important in deciding which algorithm, method, or metric to use for enhanced image assessment. Image fusion is a popular choice for various image enhancement applications such as overlay of two image products, refinement of image resolutions for alignment, and image combination for feature extraction and target recognition. Since image fusion is used in many geospatial and night vision applications, it is important to understand these techniques and provide a comparative study of the methods. In this paper, we conduct a comparative study on 12 selected image fusion metrics over six multiresolution image fusion algorithms for two different fusion schemes and input images with distortion. The analysis can be applied to different image combination algorithms, image processing methods, and over a different choice of metrics that are of use to an image processing expert. The paper relates the results to an image quality measurement based on power spectrum and correlation analysis and serves as a summary of many contemporary techniques for objective assessment of image fusion algorithms.

  • A novel visible image fusion algorithm based on downsampling fractional wavelet transform and shearlet transform

    Due to the disadvantage of traditional Shearlet transform fusion method, namely, Shearlet transform may emerge Gibbs phenomenon and exist large-scale image data, and in order to suppress such pseudo-Gibbs effect in the process of downsampling, we propose a novel method based on downsampling fractional wavelet transform and Shearlet transform. Our proposed method combines the theory of compressed sensing with decomposition of the different gray distribution feature source images. In our paper, the comparison experimental results are conducted respectively by using image fusion rules of regional maximum value and variance matching. The results show that our method can avoid the pseudo-Gibbs phenomenon, compared with traditional method, our method reduces the amount of data transmission and fusion, enhancing the fusion efficiency, and also shortens the image fusion time to no more than 50s.

  • SAR/IR sensor image fusion and real-time implementation

    This paper presents a real time SAR/IR fusion system for automatic target recognition (ATR) applications. The system contains three major components: preprocessing, registration and fusion. The registration algorithm is based on Zheng-Chellappa's (see IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, no.7, p.311, 1993) APFBR work. The fusion algorithm employs a biologically inspired merging rule to carry out SAR/IR fusion at the pixel level. In the fused images, features from individual sensor images are not only preserved but also enhanced. The fused images are more suitable for visual perception and ATR operations. The system has been implemented on a SIMD parallel processor to achieve real-time performance. It has been extensively tested on real SAR/IR data.

  • Strip steel surface defect image mosaic method based on area CCD

    The strip steel surface defects which collected by area CCD are not continuous image, there are overlap between each other. In order to join the overlapped images properly, and meantime maintain the original image feature, a weighted average fusion method based on provincial characteristics is adapted. A linear interpolation image fusion method is proposed for improving the contrast of the fused image, enhance the high frequency information, and eliminate matching trace. With linear interpolation image fusion, the pixels gray value of overlap area is replaced by the corresponding weighted average of gray value in two images. Experimental results show that the fusion method can meet the requirements of strip steel defect detection. And it can effectively eliminate the traces of image mosaic, make the image clearer. This made a foundation for the strip surface defect identification and quality evaluation.

  • Research on image fusion for visible and infrared images

    According to study on the definition of information fusion and the analysis about the nature of image fusion, the image fusion method is divided into spatial domain and frequency domain. By analyzing and comparing the performance of the both two, the advantages and prospects of the latter are confirmed. In frequency domain, the fusion method based on two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform is mainly introduced. Based on high and low filters, it decomposes the source image into couples of sub-band images which highlight image's detail information in different spatial resolutions. By means of applying different fusion rules to distinct sub-band images, the final fused image is achieved by using the inverse discrete wavelet transform. The experimental results indicate that the fused image successfully reflects the comprehensive information on the target object or the target scene.

  • Finger print fusion using Daubechies (Db1) wavelet transformation and quality measures

    Image Fusion is mechanism that is used to associate admissible information from a set of images of same scene into a single image. A Fused image is more informative, clear, noise free. In this paper Finger prints are used as input to image fusion mechanism. Daubechies Wavelet transformation is applied on them. Various fusion rules are applied on wavelet coefficients like mean, add, maximum, minimum. Quality of fingerprints are being tested using parameters are PSNR, Average Difference, Entropy, Chi-Square.

  • New transform techniques for enhancement and fusion of multispectral and hyperspectral images

    This paper presents a new approach to the development of multispectral/hyperspectral image enhancement and fusion algorithms. In approaches used up to now for image enhancement, the bands are typically processed separately, and this results in considerable distortion. The amount of information in many bands are also not very efficiently used. The objective of this work is to utilize the amount of information available more effectively, remove such distortions and to improve the appearance of the images. To realize this goal, we developed two new algorithms using transform techniques. In the resulting algorithms developed, image enhancement and image fusion are considered together

This paper gives the efficient method for fusion purpose, by fusing LIDAR and visual camera images. The objective of this proposed method is to develop an image fusion algorithm and its applications in automated navigation in an unstructured environment.
