A pattern recognition system is described for recognizing shipbuilding parts using artificial neural networks and Fourier descriptors. The system uses shape contour information that is invariant of size, translation, and rotation. Fourier descriptors provide information, and the neural networks make decisions about the shapes. A brief review of the current state of the art is included, and results from testing show that the system distinguished between various shapes and proved to be a valid approach.
