Estimation of oriented normal direction distribution via mixed areas

Open Access

Documento adjunto(s)



An indirect method for the estimation of the area measure of a planar set X from the convex ring is proposed. At first, the mixed area A(X,ﬠ,K) of X with sufficiently enough rotations ﬠ of a chosen convex test set K is estimated by means of the dilation area. Then, the area measure estimate is obtained by solving an integral equation. The estimation bias is discussed and several particular examples are presented.
