Abstract

This paper presents a new approach for processing images of woven fabrics to determine the warp-weft densities. This approach includes three main steps, namely; image transformation, image enhancement, and analyzing signals of the image. In the experimental process, 19 different woven fabric images were scanned at a high resolution (2400 dpi); then these images were transferred to the MATLAB program. By using the vertical and horizontal frequencies of the textile image, the FFT analyses were carried out. Consequently with 97 % accuracy, the densities were predicted only by using the images instead of counting them by hand.
