Evaluation of Optimal Edge Detection Method For Wool Fiber

Abstract

This paper mainly studies characteristic of wool fiber image were extracted by using Optical microscope attached to a computer which capture still images of wool fiber and then pre-processed using MATLAB software and then was applied different edge detection methods have been applied. The Prewitt, Canny, Sobel, Roberts, Laplacian of Gaussian (LOG) and zero-cross methods of edge detection are compared through the experiments and determine of optimal method based on statistical parameters as Mean Square Error (MSE) is considered as one of the criterion that identifies image quality, we evaluated that canny method is suitable for extracting the edge of the wool fibers
