Abstract

Rotation-invariant pattern recognition can be achieved with circular-harmonic decomposition. A common problem with such a filter is that, because it is only a single term out of the circular decomposition, it does not contain much of the reference object’s energy. Thus, the obtained correlation selectivity is low. This problem is solved by use of wavelength multiplexing. First, different harmonic terms are encoded by different wavelengths, and then they all are added incoherently in the output correlation plane. This process leads to rotation-invariant pattern recognition with a higher discrimination ability.
