Abstract: This paper presents a filter for restoration of images that are highly corrupted by salt and pepper noise. By incorporating fuzzy logic after detecting and correcting the noisy pixel, the proposed filter is able to suppress noise and preserve details across a wide range of salt and pepper noise corruption, ranging from 1% to 60%. The proposed filter is tested on different images and is found to produce better results than the Traditional Median Filter

Keywords: Salt-and-pepper noise, Median Filter, Fuzzy reasoning.
