This paper is based on a novel of filter which includes detection and removal of salt & pepper noise using fuzzy based adaptive filter. Once the detection stage detects the noisy pixels, they are passed on to the next filtering stage. The noise-free pixels are retained unchanged. Simulation results show good results. Images are corrupted with the noise when the authors are transmitted or during image acquisition process. Mostly, images are corrupted with an impulsive noise that is, bipolar in nature. This impulsive (bipolar) noise is called salt & pepper noise.
