Paper Abstract

An optical fractal image analysis system is being developed to permit the analysis of image texture in real time. This system could find application in real-time monitoring and control for high value processing, such as in the chemical process industry and medical laboratories, or where a quantitative measure of image texture is useful. This paper expands on previous presentations by discussing issues of optical versus digital implementation, the alternative interpretations of grayness, and the advantages of neural networks for the final analysis.
