Summary: 
The thresholding results for gray level images depend greatly on the thresholding method applied. However, this letter proposes a histogram equalization-based thresholding algorithm that makes the thresholding results insensitive to the thresholding method applied. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed thresholding algorithm.
