Paper Abstract

We describe a complex optical system consisting of a 4f optical correlator with programmable filters under control of a digital on-board computer that operates at video rates for filter generation, storage, and management. It gives intelligent vision to a semi-autonomous vehicle, with ability to recognize immediate danger to its survival in the near term and ability to pursue navigational goals on the basis of tracking the previously identified features.
