Paper Abstract

A general purpose image recognition system has been developed for scene or symbol identification in unit material handling applications. The system is comprised of a photodiode array camera, a flash illumination unit and high-speed correlation computer. Black-white images are sensed by the camera during a 5 microsecond flash interval. These images are compared with a series of stored "template" images using the high speed correlation computer until a match is found. Images are identified at a rate of 300 per minute with a templage library of about 2,000 reference images.
