Abstract:

Many functions can be expanded in terms of various orthogonal functions some better known examples are cosines and Laguerre functions. The purpose of this effort is the establishment of the optimum set of such functions to be used as basis functions for the description of spatial filters for the detection of the members of each of several classes of objects. This will enable the definition of numerous spatial filters by the manipulation of a relatively small set of basis functions. Such a system would have the added advantage of permitting filter generation in near real time. This effort will attempt to develop a technique for defining and measuring parameters for classes of objects in near-real time, thus allowing for practical automatic pattern recognition.
