Paper Abstract

This paper describes an object recognition technique based on the concept of local symmetry. A technique is described which can detect 1D features under situations of extreme low contrast. The effectiveness of the technique is shown through application to DNA autoradiographs. The technique is then expanded so that 2D objects can be located and then recognized. In the 2D case the resulting output of the technique is a locus which can be compared to those in a database. It is further shown how the technique is robust against changes in both scale and orientation.
