Paper Abstract

The human eye is a good model for the engineering of optical correlators. Three prominent intelligent functionalities in human vision could in the near future become realized by a new diffractive-optical hardware design of optical imaging sensors: (1) Illuminant-adaptive RGB-based color Vision, (2) Monocular 3D Vision based on RGB data processing, (3) Patchwise fourier-optical Object-Classification and Identification. The hardware design of the human eye has specific diffractive-optical elements (DOE's) in aperture and in image space and seems to execute the three jobs at -- or not far behind -- the loci of the images of objects.
