Paper Abstract

Real time texture processing is hinded by the large amount of computation required by the texture measurement. Laws' digital method of texture analysis presents the double advantage of being particularly discriminant and perfectly suitable for an optical preprocessing operation based on birefringent crystal properties. Associated to an incoherent to coherent converter, such an optical preprocessor could yield a quasi real-time high-resolution measure of texture, the texture classification and segmentation being done by a digital computer. We shall also present results showing the feasibility and the resolution that may be achieved by such a texture processor.
