In this paper, a novel image thresholding approach based on the-crispness maximization of the 2D grayscale histogram is proposed. The threshold vector (T, S) is obtained-by an exhaustive searching algorithm. In this approach, the difference between these two components is guaranteed to be within a relatively small range. This cannot be achieved in fuzzy entropy based methods, such as Abuialeb, Brink's method. Experimental results show that our proposed approach not only performs well and effectively but also is more robust when applied to noisy images.
