This paper describes a method for the determination of the colour of inhomogeneous stains on textile using flatbed scanning (FBS) and image analysis (IA). The method can be used to assess the cleaning performance of laundry detergent products. Stains on textile were visualised using a standard flatbed scanner. A fully automatic procedure was developed using image analysis (IA) software. Different colorimetric calibration procedures were investigated. The method was tested on 24 different types of stain on cotton cloths and compared to the analysis using a spectrophotometer. FBS-IA can be used to analyse colour changes on stained textile. The method is sufficiently accurate and precise to screen different laundry detergent products. FBS-IA is fast, easy to use and cheap. Images can further be used to analyse the spatial distribution of inhomogeneous stains. The best agreement between FBS-IA and spectrophotometer was obtained using a 3 by 9 transformation matrix without linearization of the RGB response.

More about this publication?
  • Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
