— Edge detection methods in the field of image processing are an important application area. Currently, image processing is being exploited in many areas. For this reason, methods used in developing more and more every day and studies which is about computer vision systems are being developed for less errors. Optimization algorithms have been used for better results in so many studies. In this paper, Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) Optimization Algorithm is used for edge detection which is about gray scale images. First, ABC algorithm is explained. Following, edge detection and edge detection with ABC algorithm are clarified. Finally, results are showed. Results show that the proposed method can be applied for edge detection operations.
— Image processing, edge detection methods, meta-heuristic methods, artificial bee colony (ABC) optimization.
