Paper Abstract

Deconstructing an image based upon it parts poses a challenge to image analysis that may be solved using adaptive algorithms. The presence of occlusion or image rotation makes template matching difficult. Image segmentation techniques can be used to discriminate between objects via feature synthesis using deformable templates. This paper describes modifications to existing techniques commonly used to do real-time image segmentation for efficient hardware implementation. Edge detection and edge direction finding techniques may be used within the context of deformable templates for real-time automatic target recognition and tracking.
