Description

Delete deceptive edge pixels that are scattered in the design space.

Usage

1
modify2(bandwidth, edge, plot)

Arguments

bandwidth

A positive integer to specify the number of pixels used in the local smoothing.

edge

A matrix of 0 and 1 represents detected edge pixels.

plot

If plot = TRUE, images of detected edges before the modification and after the modification are plotted.

Details

A local-smoothing based edge detection algorithm may flag deceptive edge pixel candidates. One kind of such candidates existis due to the nature of hypothesis testing, on which the threshold value of the edge detection criterion is based. That is, a point (x_i, y_j) could be flagged as a edge pixel with certain probability, even if it is actually not a edge pixel. Deceptive candidates of this kind are scattered in the whole design space. This modification procedure deletes scattered edge pixel candidates.

Value

Returns a matrix of zeros and ones of the same size as edge.
