Fibre segmentation

Reactiv’IP developped a tool able to segment overlapping fibres. The fibres were positionned between two plexiglas slides and the image was acquired with a computer scanner.

Fibre segmentation

The application presents several challenges: fibres are flat, translucent and overlap each other. These difficulties make usual segmentation approaches useless.

Results and measures

This application automatically provides the number of fibres, their length, their thickness and their orientation.


Length cumulated histogram (top-left), histogram by width (top-right), histogram by length (bottom-left) and histogram of the orientations (bottom-right).
