Abstract

A new bias method for the optical implementation of cellular neural networks is proposed to reduce electronic precalculation and increase processing speed. A multiple-object joint transform correlator is then used to realize the summation of multiple correlations resulting from the bias method. Compared with other optical systems for cellular neural networks, the proposed method offers the advantages of higher processing speed, easy implementation, and robustness. Computer simulations of the optical cellular neural networks for edge detection and corner and horizontal line extraction are also presented.
