Abstract: Image segmentation plays an important role in image analysis as a frequent pre-processing step, which divides the image into set of different segments. Thresholding is an easy yet efficient method for image segmentation, while dividing different objects with distinct gray levels. Finding an effective threshold is especially complicated task in the segmentation. In this paper, for efficient threshold selection fuzzy methodology used which produces better segmentation results than other methodologies. It was observed that at different background intensity levels favourable results were obtained.
Keywords: Image Segmentation, thresholding, fuzzy methodology
