Designing observer trials for image fusion experiments with Latin Squares
Multisensor image fusion (e.g. IR with visual) is the process of combining relevant information from two or more images into a single image. The aim is to find an objective quality measure, which can be used in automatic applications, that correlates best with subjective observer trials. Not all combinations of image, algorithm, and test observer can be worked out. In this paper R. Fisher's Design of Experiments approach based on Latin Squares is used for thinning out the number of experiments for each observer in such observer trials while preserving exactness and reliability of the result.
