We present a parallel mechanism for detecting contours embedded in a binary image. The proposed algorithm can detect contours in parallel in sequential machines with less computational effort. The hardware architecture of the algorithm is also proposed. Experiments with a wide variety of binary images show that the speed of this new technique is much faster than that of other contour detection methods.
