RODRIGUEZ, R.. A robust algorithm for binarization of objects. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.1, pp. 7-13. ISSN 0327-0793.

Many times, binarization is recognized to be one of the most important steps in most high-level image analysis systems; particularly, for the object recognition. However, experience has shown that the most effective methods continue to be the iterative ones. In this work, entropy is used as a stopping criterion when segmenting an image by recursively applying mean shift filtering. Of this way, a new algorithm for the binarization of objects is introduced.
