A forward-chaining production system has been constructed to analyze sequences of forward-looking infrared (FLIR) images. The system exploits relationships between various scene elements to aid in the identification of small objects. The system also integrates semantic considerations into the process of object/background segmentation. Parameters are first set in a standard edge-based segmenter so as to produce an over-segmentation of the image. A set of production rules is used to merge segments and adjust parameters depending on the initial interpretations of the segments, relationships between segments, and on interpretations of the final segments. Results compare favorably with those obtained from the same standard segmenter used with parameters optimized for interpretation-blind operation.
