Multiscale Texture Analysis

Unilever is a British-Dutch multinational consumer goods company with a large R&D operation which includes a laboratory located in Port Sunlight, Wirral.

In the late 1990’s, researchers at the University of Bristol collaborated with scientists at Unilever to explore the utility of multiscale (wavelet) methods for characterising greyscale texture and constructed statistical models to enable the objective classification of image textures.
These methods were applied to problems in fabric care.

This case study explains the technical background that underlies the applied methods and shows how they were used on products data.
