In this paper, we apply artificial neural networks for classifying texture data of various natural objects found in FLIR images. Hermite functions are used for texture feature extraction from segmented regions of interest in natural scenes taken as a video sequence. 2,680 samples for twelve different classes are used for object recognition. The results on correctly identifying twelve natural objects in scenes are compared across ten folds of the cross-validation study. Neural networks are found to be extremely effective in robust classification of our data giving an average recognition rate of 91.8%.
