Abstract

We have presented a general methodological framework of a distributed model-based recognition system. We have stressed the importance of scalability of the system architecture, and suggested how it may be achieved. We have also demonstrated how the hardware, programming and algorithmic levels can be integrated into a coherent application-driven architecture.
