The concept of the “Fixation”, meaning to monitor features for identifying transport vehicles is proposed. And a framework of the “Fuzzy Hierarchical Pattern Recognition using a Fixation Feedback (FHPR/FF)” ” algorithm is introduced. The experiment system, for identifying car types and car names where 70 images are taken for 14 miniature cars from 5 directions, is constructed. Forced recognition of 92.9% is achieved for car types and 89.7% for car names. The proposed experiment system is the basis for real running vehicle identification confirmed by perfect identification of 5 images for each model.
