Abstract

See full text

The present invention is directed to an object recognition system. The system includes a database having stored therein a trained reference vector. The trained reference vector includes a finite string of weighted reference feature elements optimized using a genetic algorithm which uses a dynamic length chromosome. The trained reference vector is optimized relative to a fitness function. The fitness function is an information based function. The trained reference vector corresponds to a known object or class of objects. A sensor is disposed in a surveilled region and configured to generate sensor data. The sensor data corresponds to objects disposed in the surveilled region. A recognition module is coupled to the sensor and the at least one database. The recognition module is configured to generate data object vectors from the sensor data. Each data object vector corresponds to one object. The recognition module is configured to combine the reference vector with each data object vector to obtain at least one fusion value for that vector. The fusion value is compared with a predetermined threshold value to thereby measure the likeness of the at least one object relative to the known object or class of objects.
