Paper Abstract

We have developed a new architecture for computer vision which is a multi-level, MIMD machine. It is a homogenous system where the control unit, processing arrays and image store are all built using the same type of digital signal processor (DSP). DSPs provide satisfactory performance at low-level and intermediate-level image processing and make the construction of a homogenous system possible the processing array of the system consists of three linear arrays. Each linear array is dedicated to one image processing type. The system has a modular design and it can be expanded easily. The overall system design utilizes distributed memory MIMD paradigm. The system is benchmarked with some low- and immediate-level image processing algorithms such as convolution, edge finding. Hough transform etc. and results are presented.
