A novel method of three-dimensional (3-D) object recognition is proposed. Several projections of a 3-D target are recorded under white-light illumination and fused into a single complex two-dimensional function. After proper filtering, the resulting function is coded into a computer-generated hologram. When this hologram is coherently illuminated, a correlation space is reconstructed such that light peaks indicate the existence and locations of true targets in the observed 3-D scene. Experimental results and comparisons with results of another 3-D object recognition technique are presented.
