Although template matching method is widely used for object identification, the large computational time is the major drawback to use this method in real time application. Using the concepts of replication and massive parallelism operations, the DNA computing algorithm can efficiently reduce the computational time of the template matching method. The emphasis of this research has been given in two objectives, namely development of a generic DNA computing algorithm for object identification based on the theme of the template matching technique and application of this algorithm for recyclable waste paper sorting. The achieved classification success rates are 92%, 90%, and 93% with template size 5 x 5 pixels for white paper, old newsprint paper and old corrugated cardboard, respectively. © 2012 IEEE.
