Dizilim Problemine Dokusal Tabanlı bir yaklaşım - A Texture Based Approach to Assembly Problem (in Turkish)
M. Ş. Sağıroğlu, A. Erçil
the puzzle assembly has a great impoertance that it can be applied many areas such as restoration and reconstruction of acheological findings, repairing of broken objects, solving jigsaw type puzzles, molecular docking problem, etc. The puzzle pieces usually include not only geometrical shape information but also visual information of texture, color, continuity of lines and so on. This paper presents a new approach that pictorial assembly, in contrast to previous curve matching methods, uses texture information as well as geometric shape. First, the texture and confidence values is used to generate an affinity measure of corresponding pieces. The optimization of total affinity gives the best assembly of puzzle. The novel contribution of this paper is the development of a performance measure that represents the goodness of assembly of piceses based on textural features and geometrical shape.
