Two Multi-Processor Systems for Low-Level Real-Time Vision

  • Volker Graefe
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 11)


Two multi-processor systems are described that have been designed to serve as pre-processors in hierarchical computer vision systems for the automatic interpretation of image sequences in real time. Both pre-processors consist of several separate subprocessors which perform various low-level vision tasks simultaneously and independently. Freely movable windows permit the computing power of the pre-processors to be concentrated in those parts of the image which are most relevant for the task at hand. The pre-processors are used in experiments involving motion control by computer vision.
