I am a novice user in image processing and working on a project to determine number of yarns in a fabric image i.e. warps and wefts (Perpendicular and parallel yarns to x-axis).
I am trying to detect the yarns by taking the sum of columns and rows for warps and weft respectively but it doesn't seem working because the image is not very well focused and sharp. Also the method is much sensitive to the alignment of yarns in the fabric.
Please propose a better algorithm if possible for detection of yarns. Also if there is any possibility to make yarns straight for every captured image. I have tried IMROTATE but it creates the black regions in image which disturbs the sum of rows and algorithm gets failed.
Any help in this regard will be of much worth to me. Thanks.
