A new approach to intensity-invariant filter design is introduced. This approach post-processes a distortion-invariant correlation response. The correlation responses of a filter bank are mapped into a 3-D volume matrix where the third dimension is intensity. For each given intensity level the volume matrices are weighted by a complex exponential with unit magnitude and linear in phase. These weighted volume matrices are summed together to form filter volume matrix. Pages or slices from the volume are used as a bank of 2-D correlation filters. Computer simulations are included to quantify the performance of this approach.
