Paper Abstract

Image processing is a field of great interest for many applications. Nowadays it is very hard to name an application where image processing is not involved. Digital techniques remains the dominant ones applied to digital image processing with significant automation approaches that are built in image display, as in most digital cameras and digital TVs, to name few. Depending on the application, digital image processing techniques produces satisfactory accurate results. However, digital enhancement techniques suffer from the main constraint: slow processing speed, an inherited problem associated with any digital image processing technique. On the other hand optical image enhancement techniques such as the polarization-based ones produce satisfactory accurate results and at the same time overcome the processing time constraint associated with their digital counter ones. This paper presents a comparison between digital and polarization-based enhancement/encoding techniques with respect to their accuracy, security and processing time in automated pattern recognition applications.
