Feature Extraction for Surface Classification – An

By Smriti H. Bh and S. M. Deshp

Abstract

Abstract—Surface metrology with image processing is a challenging task having wide applications in industry. Surface roughness can be evaluated using texture classification approach. Important aspect here is appropriate selection of features that characterize the surface. We propose an effective combination of features for multi-scale and multi-directional analysis of engineering surfaces. The features include standard deviation, kurtosis and the Canny edge detector. We apply the method by analyzing the surfaces with discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT). We used Canberra distance metric for similarity comparison between the surface classes. Our database includes the surface textures manufactured by three machining processes namely Milling, Casting and Shaping. The comparative study shows that DT-CWT outperforms DWT giving correct classification performance of 91.27 % with Canberra distance metric. Keywords—Dual-tree complex wavelet transform, surface metrology, surface roughness, texture classification. I
