An efficient architecture is presented to synthesize filters of arbitrary orientations from linear combinations of basis filters, allowing one to adaptively `steer' a filter to any orientation, and to determine analytically the filter output as a function of orientation. The authors show how to design and steer filters, and present examples of their use in several tasks: the analysis of orientation and phase, angularly adaptive filtering, edge detection, and shape-from-shading. It is also possible to build a self-similar steerable pyramid representation which may be considered to be a steerable wavelet transform. The same concepts can be generalized to the design of 3-D steerable filters, which should be useful in the analysis of image sequences and volumetric data
