Some applications in computer-aided design and computer vision areas require rough or inexact object models. We propose a method for fuzzy shape specifications based on parametric geons and fuzzy set theory. These fuzzy specifications are used to create customised 3D shapes to be stored in a library for later use. The shapes can be retrieved using fuzzy global generic shape descriptors and fuzzy subjective shape descriptors nominated by an user. The usefulness and limitations of this approach are also discussed.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
