ABSTRACT
In this paper we propose a color image segmentation algorithm based on perceptual color vision model. First, the original image is divide into image blocks which are not overlapped; then, the mean and variance of every image back was calculated in CIEL*a*b* color space, and the image blocks were divided into homogeneous color blocks and texture blocks by the variance of it. The initial seed regions are automatically selected depending on calculating the homogeneous color blocks' color difference in CIEL*a*b* color space and spatial information. The color contrast gradient of the texture blocks need to calculate and the edge information are stored for regional growing. The fuzzy region growing algorithm and coloredge detection to obtain a final segmentation map. The experimental segmentation results hold favorable consistency in terms of human perception, and confirm effectiveness of the algorithm.
