Abstract

Mutually orthogonal pattern distortions are handled by an adaptive optical recognition system. A double-channel system is presented that implements pattern recognition with rotation, scale, and shift invariance. The recognition process is based on a two-stage operation: An object-independent determination of one distortion parameter (the scale, in the example presented here) is performed, and then the recognition is completed by a shift- and rotation-invariant optical correlator that is adapted to the measured parameter. Thus, complete invariance to three distortion parameters is achieved by the combination of two channels. The overall process is performed efficiently and can be executed in real time.
