Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation is to find out how the human visual system performs pattern invariance recognition. A detailed study of the human visual system is made, a model of a portion of this system is derived, the model is simulated on a digital computer and tested to determine its pattern invariance recognition capabilities. The results indicate that the model recognizes patterns when translated slightly, rotated small amounts, or varied slightly in size and shape however, its capabilities are far short of those of the human visual system. A recommendation is made for revising the model for further investigation.
