Abstract

Great universality and flexibility of an automatic picture analysis is most easily reached by the use of a computer-based picture processing system. A digital picture processing system designed, built up and utilized in the Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering is an example of such a system. It is very useful as a research tool to investigate methods of an analysis of pictures as well as it is used for many practical applications of this methods in science and technology.

The CPO-2/K-202 system consists of a minicomputer system and a special picture input/output device. The special pictorial peripheral, named CPO-2, for digital image conversion and for input/output of pictures to/from the computer system contains: a TV-camera and TV monitors, A/D and D/A converters, and an image buffer memory. The computer system comprises Polish K-202 minicomputer, a standard set of I/O peripherals and an appropriate software system for image processing. The software includes an assembler, a large library of image processing subroutines called PICASSO, and a PICASSO-SHOW family of interactive programming languages for picture processing.

Several application programs were written for the system, e.g. for analysis of pictures of leukemia cells, radar cloud covers, chromosome banding patterns as well as for measurement of limb joints angles for locomotion research.

Keywords
