Researchers such as Zhu [30] and Pizer & Damon [4, 9] have modified the definition of the medial axis in their work to make the axis more robust, but as a consequence have sacrificed some of these. In this chapter we discuss a medial axis computation technique for a discrete binary object based on the Voronoi diagram of a point sample obtained from its boundary.

The method is developed for. and medial-axis-based shape features, which were then organized into vectors and assigned to the nearest pixels of corresponding shape parts to create feature images. How-ever, the shapes this representation can represent are restricted by the feature descriptors it uses.

For instance, all descriptors mentioned in [42] are for 2D closed contours. An intuitive way to implement the MAT is the so-called grassfire transformation. There are numerous methods for medial axis computation (see Ref.

for a survey of skeletal methods). In our approach, we apply a multi-scale method to reduce the sensitivity of medial axes to image noise and boundary details. A multi-scale representation of shape F is achieved by computing its evolved versions as F Cited by: Marcon J, Kopriva DA, Sherwin SJ, Peiro J et al.,Naturally curved quadrilateral mesh generation using an adaptive spectral element solver, 28th International Meshing Roundtable and User Forum, Publisher: arXiv We describe an adaptive version of a method for generating valid naturally curved quadrilateral meshes.

The method uses a guiding field, derived from the concept of a cross field. The medial axis is a symmetry axis in the sense that each pair of associated boundaries is symmetric around the medial axis. The advantages of using the medial axis over contours are many: The medial axis represents the spatial arrangement of curves, the interior of objects, makes explicit the symmetry of a region, captures the continuity of an Cited by:   However, medial axis is composed of planar (two dimensional) and linear (one dimensional) parts.

In order to compute such dimension-dependent decomposition of the medial axis, as well as pruning away hairy branches from the medial axis one requires some extra gadgets which we describe in the next by: 2.

A broad spectrum of recent research is presented including sensing and navigation for mobile robots, the extraction of lines, curves, surfaces, and skeletons from intensity images and range images, human motion, and feature extraction. The resulting medial axis appears largely invariant with respect to typical noise conditions in the discrete data.

The method is tested on various synthetic as well as real images. We also show an application of the approximate medial axis to the sizing field for triangular and tetrahedral meshing.

This thesis evaluates the suitability of Voronoi ball models (VBMs) as a multipurpose shape representation for applications in computer graphics, scientific visualization, and computer vision.

Given an arbitrary polygon Q with n generators (i.e., line segments and reflex vertices in Q), we show that the time complexity of our algorithm is O(n 2 log 2 n) and the number of output rectangles covering Q is O(Kn.

For a three-dimensional polyhedral solid, the medial axis consists of quadric surfaces and degree-four algebraic space curves.

Computing with high-degree curves and surfaces requires high numerical precision. Most previous methods attempt to avoid such computation by discretizing, or otherwise approximating, the medial axis.

Using an adaptation of the Support Vector Regression method for multi-scale analysis, the proposed method provides a global, analytical expression for the reconstructed vector field through an efficient non-linear optimization. Experiments on artificial and real data show a statistically robust behavior of the proposed technique.

Background/Purpose: The dentate gyrus (DG) is a region in the hippocampal .The medial axis community has long exploited the ubiquitous regularity of symmetry as a basis for the decomposition of a closed contour into medial parts.

However, today's recognition systems are faced with cluttered scenes and the assumption that a closed contour exists, i.e., that figure-ground segmentation has been solved, rendering much of.
