Shape recognition for machined parts

Jose A. Ventura, Jen Ming Chen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, a structural model based on boundary information is proposed to describe the silhouette of planar objects (esp. machined parts). The structural model describes objects by a set of primitives, which compresses the data, saves the computer space, and provides a compact and meaningful form to facilitate further recognition operation. The object recognition is then accomplished by using a multi-layered feed-forward neural network. The proposed model is transformation invariant which offers the necessary flexibility for real time implementation.
