Abstract

Several elementwise component transformations performed over primary color image components (RGB) before optical multichannel correlations are proposed to improve real-time multispectral pattern recognition. The first transformation is deduced from the theory of the optimal filter for object location and recognition extended to multispectral images. Several modifications of this transformation are studied. We investigate these transformations in terms of noise robustness and discrimination capability. Computer simulation with noisy input images for various kinds of correlation filter are presented to illustrate improvement of color pattern recognition by using the proposed transformations. Experimental results are also presented.
