Abstract:

This report describes experiments with a coherent matched filter optical correlator that demonstrates the feasibility of compact correlators identifying vehicles from any perspective and tracking them in real time. The number of required separate filters are greatly reduced with multiplexing schemes. Any sensor with resolution equivalent to that of consumer TV components is adequate to form the correlator input image. Author
