Abstract
We investigate the performance of morphological correlation under different illumination conditions. The morphological correlation is shown to be invariant to uniform input-image illumination when the input-image illumination is higher than that of the reference. Accordingly, illumination- independent pattern recognition can be realized using morphological correlation provided the reference is multiplied by a proper number less than unity or the input image is multiplied by a number greater than unity before threshold-decomposition. In addition, the correlation peak tends to get broader when illumination of the input is different from that of the reference. Computer simulation results are provided.
