An automated detection and recognition system is described for use with x-ray images of luggage inspection systems. The development goal was to achieve an automated analysis which may support operator-based control of luggage. The focus of attention lies on the recognition and checking of specified objects to which the system has been adapted during a training phase. The system trained so far concentrates on the detection of detonators and fire- arms. The segmentation gives various objects from which several features are extracted. These features are presented to a classifier which assigns the objects to predetermined categories. For classification a specially trained neural network (multilayer perceptron) is used. For detection of weapons first performance data are available. Detection of detonators is in the laboratory stage and shown first results.
