A unified homogeneity criterion for rear lamps

Nils Pfullmann, Christian Studeny and Beatrice Richter

Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel homogeneity criterion based on a just noticeable difference (JND) estimation model. An extensive study is presented to validate the proposed criterion exhibiting an unprecedented agreement between data and methodology. Current criteria are reviewed and compared to the proposed criterion.
