Abstract: This paper presents a new simple and robust texture analysis feature based on Bidimensional Empirical Mode Decomposition (BEMD) and Local Binary Pattern (LBP). BEMD is a locally adaptive decomposition method and suitable for the analysis of nonlinear or nonstationary signals. Texture images are decomposed to several Bidimensional Intrinsic Mode Functions (BIMFs) by BEMD, which present a new set multi-scale components of images. In our approach, firstly, saddle points are added as supporting points for interpolation to improve original BEMD, and then images are decomposed by the new BEMD to several components (BIMFs). After then, Local Binary Pattern (LBP) in different sizes is used to detect features from different BIMFs. At last, normalization and BIMFs selection method are adopted for features selection. The proposed feature presents invariant while preserving LBP’s simplicity. Our method has also been evaluated in CuRet and KTH-TIPS2a texture image databases. It is experimentally demonstrated that the proposed feature achieves higher classification accuracy than other state-of-theart texture representation methods, especially in small training samples condition.
