Paper Abstract

We develop a new morphological hit-miss algorithm for detecting the features of binary images. The standard hit-miss algorithms use block structure patterns for matching features but in many practical situations this may cause problems because the size of the object is usually unknown. In the proposed algorithm we match the corners of the object instead of the block structure pattern -- this approach works nicely because most objects have different structure elements for the corners. The size of the object plays a less significant role in our recognition algorithm than in the standard algorithms. Our method can be easily adapted to recognize the features of different types of objects. We have implemented the proposed algorithm to recognize the muzzles of guns in military vehicles.
