The recognition of bridge in long-range infrared images presents a number of problems due to the complexity of background, high noise interference, small size of target and low contrast between bridge and its surrounding water area. To counter these barriers, we have developed a new knowledge-based recognition algorithm. It first detects the candidate bridge sub-regions and then focus on them. According to the degree to which they match with our pre-built framework, different credits are given, so the false objects are excluded and eventually real target is found. The experimental results demonstrate our localized method is always superior to the traditional global algorithms adopted by most former researchers.
