Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Snakes are a novel model for extracting a boundary of an object. They have received a great deal of attention. The model is based on deforming an initial contour toward the boundary of the object to be detected. This deformation is realized by minimizing an energy function which consists of the external energy based on the image and the internal energy based on the smoothness of the boundary. The energy function is designed such that its local minimum is obtained at the boundary of the object. In this paper, we survey the history of Snakes and discuss the methodology of the modeling, numerical calculations and intrinsic problems.
