Abstract

In the last decade several systems based on a hierarchical structure have been proposed and built for computervision and image processing applications.

Among the different paradigms the most investigated has been the one based on a pyramidal structure of homogeneous processors.

In what follows the main features and characteristics of this family of hierarchical architectures will be introduced.
