Eli Tzirkel Hancock: Location of pattern in signal. Canon Kabushiki Kaisha, Fitzpatrick Cella Harper & Scinto, May 25, 1999: US05907825 (15 worldwide citation)

A method for determining the location of a pattern, when input in isolation, within a representative input signal is provided. The method aligns the input signal with a signal representative of a plurality of connected patterns, one of which is the same as the pattern within the input signal. The me ...
