This paper proposes a novel image processing method based on a percolation model. The percolation model is used to represent the natural phenomenon of the permeation of liquid. The percolation takes into account the connectivity among the neighborhoods. In the proposed method, a cluster formation by the percolation process is performed first. Then, feature extraction from the cluster is carried out. Therefore, this method is a type of scalable window processing for realizing a robust and flexible feature extraction. The effectiveness of proposed method was verified by experiments on crack detection, noise reduction, and edge detection.
