Paper Abstract

Optical/Digital pattern recognition and tracking based on optical/digital correlation are a well-known techniques to detect, identify and localize a target object in a scene. Despite the limited number of treatments required by the correlation scheme, computational time and resources are relatively high. The most computational intensive treatment required by the correlation is the transformation from spatial to spectral domain and then from spectral to spatial domain. Furthermore, these transformations are used on optical/digital encryption schemes like the double random phase encryption (DRPE). In this paper, we present a VLSI architecture for the correlation scheme based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). One interesting feature of the proposed scheme is its ability to stream image processing in order to perform correlation for video sequences. A trade-off between the hardware consumption and the robustness of the correlation can be made in order to understand the limitations of the correlation implementation in reconfigurable and portable platforms. Experimental results obtained from HDL simulations and FPGA prototype have demonstrated the advantages of the proposed scheme.
