Biologically inspired identification and classification of a system's environment through artificial vision


"The human vision system is a very sophisticated image processing mechanism. It has the ability to instantly process the image of objects and identify them, or classify a new item into a new category. Unlike most sensors, a camera is a passive system, yet the wealth of information that can be attained from a visual sensor is enormous. However, the amount of data processing that occurs with visual systems is also large. To try and overcome this problem, a philosophy is adopted of examining how natural systems perform the task, and then model the natural system. This dissertation divides the problem into four tasks"--Abstract, page iii.
