A novel method for image region segmentation is proposed, which is inspired by the carrier immigration mechanism in semiconductor materials. The carrier diffusing and drifting are simulated in the proposed model, and the sign distribution of net carrier at the model’s balance state is exploited for region segmentation. The experiments have been done for test images and real world images, which prove the effectiveness of the proposed method.
