Abstract

The use of fuzzy-logic techniques on the correlation output plane is analyzed as a method to improve the discrimination capabilities of pattern-recognition procedures. The study is divided into two parts: one recounts a computer-simulated example corresponding to pattern recognition by the use of input images that may be defocused, tilted, or corrupted by additive Gaussian noise, and the second part describes an experimental setup in which the deformation of foam material is studied.
