Colour image segmentation, classiﬁcation, histogram multi thresholding, colour spaces, connectedness properties
In this article, we propose a new colour image segmentation algorithm by unsupervised classiﬁcation of pixels. This procedure iteratively constructs the classes by histogram multithresholding. For
this purpose, the procedure selects different colour spaces in which
the pixels belonging to the modes of the 1D-histograms present
remarkable connectedness properties, so that each mode corresponds
effectively to a region in the image.
