Abstract

New experimental results for scale-invariant implementations of the binary phase-only matched filter and the nonlinear joint transform correlator using ferroelectric liquid-crystal spatial light modulators are presented. We provide a comparative study of both architectures for real-time road-sign recognition. Signal-to-peak-noise ratios in excess of 5 dB over a scale range of 1.0 to 2.0 are achieved under realistic conditions of clutter.
