Optical Pattern Recognition and Security Systems

Optical pattern recognition and security techniques employ optical light source, lenses and other optical components to process the images in parallel for correlation decision, which makes them ideal candidates for real-time pattern recognition system. A phase-shifted and phase-encoded fringe-adjusted joint transform correlation (SPFJTC) technique is developed, which can detect multiple targets in one processing step and ensures better utilization of the space-bandwidth product (SBP) resource by generating one correlation peak per target. This technique is found to be efficient with variable number of targets and even in the presence of noise in the input scene. The SPFJTC technique is extended to color pattern recognition system to utilize color of the target objects as additional feature to the spatial characteristics. Color pattern recognition technique has also been extended to multispectral system, where the images are recorded at several light wavelengths, which introduces additional feature to the target detection process. In addition to pattern recognition applications, the SPFJTC technique has been employed for securing confidential information by incorporating nonlinear encryption. This presentation will introduce the optical pattern recognition and security systems along with challenges and future directions.
