Abstract

Although metric functions that show the performance of a colorimetric imaging device have been investigated, a metric for performance analysis of a set of filters in wideband filter-based spectral cameras has rarely been studied. Based on a generalization of Vora’s Measure of Goodness (MOG) and the spanning theorem, a single function metric that estimates the effectiveness of a filter set is introduced. The improved metric, named MMOG, varies between one, for a perfect, and zero, for the worst possible set of filters. Results showed that MMOG exhibits a trend that is more similar to the mean square of spectral reflectance reconstruction errors than does Vora’s MOG index, and it is robust to noise in the imaging system. MMOG as a single metric could be exploited for further analysis of manufacturing errors.
