Paper Abstract

In this paper, we develop a coarse-to-fine algorithm for recognizing underwater objects. For coarse recognition, a new gray-spatial histogram is proposed, which incorporates spatial information with gray compositions without sacrificing the robustness of traditional gray histograms. For fine recognition, an approach to wavelet transform-based recognition using feature normalization is presented. The combination of coarse and fine recognition reduces the computational cost without degrading the recognizing accuracy. Numerical experiments are given to demonstrate the performance of the new algorithm.
