Bat-pollinated plants: Feature extraction for target recognition in the natural world.
Presented at: UNSPECIFIED.
In recent years, with the development of high range resolution radars, the desire to be able to identify targets under all weather and clutter conditions has become of great importance. Bat-pollinated plants have evolved flowers to ease classification by nectar feeding bats even in a dense clutter environment. In this paper we analyze three real images of a Cobaea scandens corolla. These were collected by means of an acoustic radar capable of very high range resolution. The features of these flowers that allow high classification performance by bats are exploited. Results are discussed and related to the task of classification in radar systems.
