Hybrid-Maximum Neural Network for Depth Analysis from Stereo-Image
In present paper, we describe completely innovation architecture of artificial neural nets based on Hopfield structure for solving of stereo matching problem. Hybrid neural network consists of classical analogue Hopfield neural network and maximal neural network. The role of analogue Hopfield network is to find of attraction area of global minimum, whereas maximum network is to find accurate location of this minimum. Presented network characterizes by extremely high rate of working with the same accuracy as classical Hopfield-like network. It is very important as far as application and system of visually impaired people supporting are concerned. Considered network was taken under experimental tests with using real stereo pictures as well simulated stereo images. This allows on calculation of errors and direct comparison to classic analogue Hopfield neural network. Results of tests have shown, that the same accuracy of solution as for continuous Hopfield-like network, can be reached by described here structure in half number of classical Hopfield net iteration.
