The University of Tennessee, Knoxville
This paper discusses implementation of color-coding schemes for detecting a variety of
potential threat objects in x-ray imagery of carry-on luggage by using color effectively.
Using colors effectively refers to utilizing colors in a proper way to provide a more
attractive and pleasing images to the screener's eye, which will help them to detect the
threat more easily without much strain. This capability will increase the efficiency of
luggage inspection by decreasing the time required to perform inspection and reduce
the probability of errors due to fatigue.
This work considers various aspects, which aid in effective handling of colors for image
display. An extensive study of factors affecting color usage is performed and based on
this study a final model is implemented. The focus is towards physiological and
