Abstract:

This research deals with the problem of extracting features from an image using wavelets and then using these features to recognize objects present in the image. This technique is applied to recognition of Unexploded Ordnance UXO objects. However, the concepts described here can be extended to recognition of other objects such as ships, missiles and aircraft. This work is performed as part of an ongoing effort to develop an autonomous vehicle capable of detecting UXOs.
