  • Images are unavoidably contaminated with different types of noise during the processes of image acquisition and transmission. The main forms of noise are impulse noise (is also called salt and pepper noise) and Gaussian noise. In this paper, an effective method of removing mixed noise from images is proposed. In general, different types of denoising methods are designed for different types of noise; for example, the median filter displays good performance in removing impulse noise, and the wavelet denoising algorithm displays good performance in removing Gaussian noise. However, images are affected by more than one type of noise in many cases. To reduce both impulse noise and Gaussian noise, this paper proposes a denoising method that combines adaptive median filtering (AMF) based on impulse noise detection with the wavelet threshold denoising method based on a Gaussian mixture model (GMM). The simulation results show that the proposed method achieves much better denoising performance than the median filter or the wavelet denoising method for images contaminated with mixed noise.

  • This paper aims to give a quick view on denoising without comprehensive details. Denoising can be understood as removing unwanted parts in signals and images. Noise incorporates intrinsic random fluctuations in the data. Since noise is ubiquitous, denoising methods and models are diverse. Starting from what noise means, we briefly discuss a denoising model as maximum a posteriori estimation and relate it with a variational form or energy model. After that we present a few major branches in image and signal processing; filtering, shrinkage or thresholding, regularization and data adapted methods, although it may not be a general way of classifying denoising methods.

  • Donoho et al. suggested a wavelet thresholding denoising method based on discrete wavelet transform. This paper proposes an improved denoising method using a new thresholding function based on translation-invariant wavelet for underwater acoustic measurement. The conventional wavelet thresholding denoising method causes Pseudo-Gibbs phenomena near singularities due to the lack of translation-invariant of the wavelet basis. To suppress Pseudo-Gibbs phenomena, a denoising method combining a new thresholding function based on the translation-invariant wavelet transform is proposed in this paper. The new thresholding function is a modified hard-thresholding to each node according to the discriminated threshold so as to reject unknown external noise and white gaussian noise. The experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively eliminate noise, extract characteristic information of radiated noise signals.

  • In most digital cameras, images are obtained by a sensor overlaid by the color filter array (CFA) such as Bayer, demanding a demosaicking procedure to rebuild the full resolution color images. However, due to the nature of sensor, it is necessary to consider denoising step to remove the noise. In this paper, we analyze demosaicking and denoising jointly and show that the proposed method can solve the denoising issue by simple manner, well suppress different level of noises. The proposed algorithm yields comparable performances measured by several image quality assessment (CPSNR, SCIELAB, and FSIM), while the computational cost is low.

  • Image denoising is basic work for image processing, analysis and computer vision. This paper proposes a novel algorithm based on wavelet threshold for image denoising, which is combined with the linear CLS (Constrained Least Squares) filtering and thresholding methods in the transform domain. We demonstrated through simulations with images contaminated by white Gaussian noise that our scheme exhibits better performance in both PSNR (Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio) and visual effect.

  • Recently, precision guided munition systems and missile defense systems based on GPS have been taking a key role in modern warfare. In warfare however, unexpected interferences cause by large/small scale fading, radio frequency interferences, etc. These interferences result in a severe GPS positioning error, which could occur late supports and friendly fires. To solve the problems, this paper proposes an interference mitigation positioning method by adopting a wavelet denoising filter algorithm. The algorithm is applied to a GPS/QZSS/Wi-Fi combined positioning system which was performed by this laboratory. Experimental results of this paper are based on a real field test data of a GPS/QZSS/Wi-Fi combined positioning system and a simulation data of a wavelet denoising filter algorithm. At the end, the simulation result demonstrates its superiority by showing a 21.6% improved result in comparison to a conventional GPS system.

  • This paper deals with speech enhancement methods using the wavelet transform. A cycle-spinning scheme and undecimated wavelet transform are used for denoising of speech signals, and then their results are compared with that of the conventional wavelet transform. We apply soft-thresholding technique for removing additive background noise from noisy speech. The symlets 8-tap wavelet and pyramid algorithm are used for the wavelet transform. Performance assessments based on average SNR, cepstral distance and informal subjective listening test are carried out. Experimental results demonstrate that both cycle-spinning denoising(CSD) method and undecimated wavelet denoising(CWD) method outperform conventional wavelet denoising(UWD) method in objective performance measure as welt as subjective listening test. The two methods also show less "clicks" that usually appears in the neighborhood of signal discontinuities.

  • In this paper, we design and implement a partial denoising boundary matching system using indexing techniques. Converting boundary images to time-series makes it feasible to perform a fast search using indexes even on a very large image database. Thus, using this converting method we develop a client-server system based on the previous partial denoising research in the GUI(graphical user interface) environment. The client first converts a query image given by a user to a time-series and sends denoising parameters and the tolerance with this time-series to the server. The server identifies similar images from the index by evaluating a range query, which is constructed using inputs given from the client and sends the resulting images to the client. Experimental results show that our system provides many intuitive and accurate matching results.

  • Image denoising is considered as a key factor for capturing high-quality photos in digital cameras. Thus far, several image denoising methods have been proposed in the past decade. In addition, previous studies either relied on deep learning-based approaches or used the hand-crafted filters. Unfortunately, the previous method mostly emphasized on image denoising regardless of preserving or recovering the detail information in result images. This study proposes an detail extraction network to estimate detail information from a noisy input image. Moreover, the extracted detail information is utilized to enhance the final denoised image. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can outperform the existing works by a subjective measurement.

  • Non-local means (NLM) algorithm is an effective and successful denoising method, but it is computationally heavy. To deal with this obstacle, we propose a novel NLM algorithm with fuzzy metric (FM-NLM) for image denoising in this paper. A new feature metric of visual features with fuzzy metric is utilized to measure the similarity between image pixels in the presence of Gaussian noise. Similarity measures of luminance and structure information are calculated using a fuzzy metric. A smooth kernel is constructed with the proposed fuzzy metric instead of the Gaussian weighted L2 norm kernel. The fuzzy metric and smooth kernel computationally simplify the NLM algorithm and avoid the filter parameters. Meanwhile, the proposed FM-NLM using visual structure preferably preserves the original undistorted image structures. The performance of the improved method is visually and quantitatively comparable with or better than that of the current state-of-the-art NLM-based denoising algorithms.
