A Statistical Approach Noise Tolerant Texture Classification

Raparthi Shilpa, B. Satish Chandra


A simple, efficient, yet robust multi resolution approach to texture classification binary rotation invariant and noise tolerant. The proposed approach is very fast to build and very compact while remaining robust to illumination variations, rotation changes, and noise. We have developed a novel and simple strategy to compute a local binary descriptor based on the conventional local binary pattern (LBP) approach, preserving the advantageous characteristics of uniform LBP. Points are sampled in a circular neighborhood, but keeping the number of bins in a single-scale LBP histogram constant and small, such that arbitrarily large circular neighborhoods can be sampled and compactly encoded over a number of scales. There is no necessity to learn a texton dictionary, as in methods based on clustering, and no tuning of parameters is required to deal with different data sets. This noise robustness characteristic of the proposed binary rotation invariant and noise tolerant is evaluated quantitatively with different artificially generated types and levels of noise including Gaussian, salt, pepper and speckle noise in natural texture images.
