Paper Abstract

This paper introduces an understanding of the role of certain types of neural cells in the vertebrate retina as a process for edge detection and localization. A design of an electronic neural ''dge detector is proposed and analyzed. Our hope is that this and similar efforts will eventually lead to the formation of engineering principles that will assist developments in the science and technology of the hardware electronic vision and machine perception. The use of neural networks is the optimal choice for the hardware implementation of the edge detector because of parallel processing is satisfied. This is similar to the role played by the physical neurons in vertebrate retina while processing the images. A computer simulation is used to test the performance of this approach. 1.
