Abstract: Aiming at the shortcomings of longtime consumption and complex algorithm in multi-threshold image segmentation, the maximum inter-class variance method and the maximum entropy threshold method are described as segmentation standards. Secondly, from the point of view of initialization and falling into local optimization of particle swarm optimization algorithm, Kent mapping is introduced, and nonlinear digressive extremum is improved. Finally, the improved particle swarm optimization algorithm is applied to multi-threshold image segmentation. Simulation results show that the algorithm has a good segmentation effect and the time consumption can be effectively reduced.

Key words: image segmentation, particle swarm optimization algorithm, multi-threshold
