We present in this paper a multi-agent approach for range image segmentation. The approach consists in using autonomous agents for the segmentation of a range image in its different planar regions. Agents move on the image and perform local actions on the pixels, allowing robust region extraction and accurate edge detection. In order to improve the segmentation quality, a Bayesian edge regularization is applied to the resulting edges. A new Markov Random Field (MRF) model is introduced to model

The experimental results obtained with real images from the ABW database show a good potential of the proposed approach for range image analysis, regarding both segmentation efficiency, and detection accuracy.
