Title: Potential Application of Fuzzy Logic in Image Processing and Quality Analysis with Optical Measurement Systems
Author(s): Alexey Saenko   Galina Polte   Victor Musalimov         

Abstract: The current work compares three different edge detection approaches which are based on search, zero-crossing, and fuzzy logic. The latter approach is chosen for image enhancement and applied in a very specific field of optical measurements. In addition, there is introduced a fuzzy method of image quality analysis.

Keywords: fuzzy logic, image processing, image enhancement, image quality analysis, edge detection.
