Wavelet Based Histogram of Oriented Gradients Feature Descriptors for Classification of Partially Occluded Objects

By Ajay Kumar Singh V. P. Shukla Shamik Tiwari S. R. Biradar

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2015

Computer vision applications face various challenges while detection and classification of objects in real world like large variation in appearances, cluttered back ground, noise, occlusion, low illumination etc.. In this paper a Wavelet based Histogram of Oriented Gradients (WHOG) feature descriptors are proposed to represent shape information by storing local gradients in image. This results in enhanced representation of shape information. The performance of the feature descriptors are tested on multiclass image data set having partial occlusion, different scales and rotated object images. The performance of WHOG feature based object classification is compared with HOG feature based classification. The matching of test image with its learned class is performed using Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) algorithm. Proposed features not only performed superior than HOG but also beat wavelet, moment invariant and Curvelet.

Blur Classification using Ridgelet Transform and Feed Forward Neural Network

By Shamik Tiwari V. P. Shukla S. R. Biradar A. K. Singh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2014

The objective of image restoration approach is to recover a true image from a degraded version. This problem can be stated as blind or non-blind depending upon whether blur parameters are known prior to the restoration process. Blind restoration deals with parameter identification before deconvolution. Though there exists multiple blind restorations techniques but blur type recognition is extremely desirable before application of any blur parameters estimation approach. In this paper, we develop a blur classification approach that deploys a feed forward neural network to categories motion, defocus and combined blur types. The features deployed for designing of classification system include mean and standard deviation of ridgelet energies. Our simulation results show the preciseness of proposed method.

Wavelet Based Intentional Blurring Variance Scheme for Blur Detection in Barcode Images

By Shamik Tiwari V. P. Shukla S. R. Biradar Ajay Kumar Singh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2014

Blur is an undesirable phenomenon which appears as one of the most frequent causes of image degradation. Automatic blur detection is extremely enviable to restore barcode image or simply utilize them. That is to assess whether a given image is blurred or not. To detect blur, many algorithms have been proposed. These algorithms are different in their performance, time complexity, precision, and robustness in noisy environments. In this paper, we present an efficient method blur detection in barcode images, with no reference perceptual blur metric using wavelets.

Blur Classification Using Wavelet Transform and Feed Forward Neural Network

By Shamik Tiwari V. P. Shukla S. R. Biradar A. K. Singh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2014

Image restoration deals with recovery of a sharp image from a blurred version. This approach can be defined as blind or non-blind based on the availability of blur parameters for deconvolution. In case of blind restoration of image, blur classification is extremely desirable before application of any blur parameters identification scheme. A novel approach for blur classification is presented in the paper. This work utilizes the appearance of blur patterns in frequency domain. These features are extracted in wavelet domain and a feed forward neural network is designed with these features. The simulation results illustrate the high efficiency of our algorithm.

Enhanced Performance of Multi Class Classification of Anonymous Noisy Images

By Ajay Kumar Singh V. P. Shukla S. R. Biradar Shamik Tiwari

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2014

An important constituents for image classification is the identification of significant characterstics about the specific class to distinguish intra class variations. Since performance of the classifiers is affected in the presence of noise, so selection of discriminative features is an important phase in classification. This superfluous information i.e. noise, e.g. additive noise may occur in images due to image sensors i.e. of the constant noise level in dark areas of the image or salt & pepper noise may be caused by analog to digitals conversion and bit error transmission etc.. Detection of noise is also very essential in the images for choosing appropriate filter. This paper presents an experimental assessment of neural classifier in terms of classification accuracy under three different constraints of images without noise, in presence of unknown noise and after elimination of noise.

Texture Features based Blur Classification in Barcode Images

By Shamik Tiwari Vidya Prasad Shukla Sangappa Biradar Ajay Singh

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2013

Blur is an undesirable phenomenon which appears as image degradation. Blur classification is extremely desirable before application of any blur parameters estimation approach in case of blind restoration of barcode image. A novel approach to classify blur in motion, defocus, and co-existence of both blur categories is presented in this paper. The key idea involves statistical features extraction of blur pattern in frequency domain and designing of blur classification system with feed forward neural network.

A Hybrid Method for Detection of Edges in Grayscale Images

By Jesal Vasavada Shamik Tiwari

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jul. 2013

Edge detection is the most fundamental but at the same time most important task in image processing and analysis. In the paper a hybrid approach combining Neural Network and Fuzzy logic based edge detection algorithm is proposed to detect edges in grayscale images. To improve the generalization ability, the neural network is trained on fuzzy inputs rather than crisp inputs. The network consists of three layers, one input layer, one hidden layer and one output layer. Fuzzy membership functions are used to convert neurons of input and hidden layer into fuzzy neurons. So the output of first and second layer is the membership value of the corresponding input in the fuzzy set. The proposed technique provides advantage of both neural networks and fuzzy logic and gives satisfactory results for both noisy and noise free images. The method is compared with Roberts, Prewitt, Sobel and Laplacian of Gaussian and other neural network and fuzzy logic based methods and the experimental results reveal that proposed method gives better edge map considering the problem of false edge detection.

A Statistical Approach for Iris Recognition Using K-NN Classifier

By Dolly Choudhary Ajay Kumar Singh Shamik Tiwari

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2013

Irish recognition has always been an attractive goal for researchers. The identification of the person based on iris recognition is very popular due to the uniqueness of the pattern of iris. Although a number of methods for iris recognition have been proposed by many researchers in the last few years. This paper proposes statistical texture feature based iris matching method for recognition using K-NN classifier. Statistical texture measures such as mean, standard deviation, entropy, skewness etc., and six features are computed of normalized iris image. K-NN classifier matches the input iris with the trained iris images by calculating the Euclidean distance between two irises. The performance of the system is evaluated on 500 iris images, which gives good classification accuracy with reduced FAR/FRR.

Performance Analysis of Texture Image Classification Using Wavelet Feature

By Dolly Choudhary Ajay Kumar Singh Shamik Tiwari V. P. Shukla

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2013

This paper compares the performance of various classifiers for multi class image classification. Where the features are extracted by the proposed algorithm in using Haar wavelet coefficient. The wavelet features are extracted from original texture images and corresponding complementary images. As it is really very difficult to decide which classifier would show better performance for multi class image classification. Hence, this work is an analytical study of performance of various classifiers for the single multiclass classification problem. In this work fifteen textures are taken for classification using Feed Forward Neural Network, Naïve Bays Classifier, K-nearest neighbor Classifier and Cascaded Neural Network.
