Cellular Neural Networks (CNNs) are nonlinear dynamic array processors with mainly local interconnections. In most of the applications, the local interconnection pattern, called cloning template, is translation invariant. In this paper, an optimal ring-coding method for rotation invariant description of given set of objects, is introduced. The design methodology of the templates based on the ring-codes and the synthesis of CNN analogic algorithms to detect standing and moving objects in a rotationally invariant way, is discussed in detail. It is shown that the algorithms can be implemented using the CNN Universal Machine, the recently invented analogic visual microprocessor. The estimated time performance and the parallel detecting capability is emphasized, the limitations are also thoroughly investigated.
