Direct single pixel vector edge definition to 0.1 pixels and less than 1 degree compared to conventional nearest whole pixel scalars.
Automatically includes measures of local edge contrast & relative sharpness.
Additional inclusion of direct single pixel vector measures of local stereo disparity or optical flow (normal component) for pairs of images.
Edge-based region segmentation automatically carried out during all processes.
Simple supplementary processing provided to derive local edge curvature; also true flow for rigid bodies plus global disparity (for fusion) for stereo or optical flow pairs of images.
Free limited version of software available for download as 'SHV_taster'.
PDF report discussing comparisons of capabilities of SHV with those of conventional image processing techniques.
