Paper Abstract

SIMD parallel systems have been employed for image processing and computer vision applications since their inception. This paper describes a system in which parallel programs are implemented using a machine-independent, retargetable object library that provides SIMD execution on the Lockheed Martin PAL-I SIMD parallel processor. Programs' performance on this machine is improved through on-the-fly execution analysis and scheduling. We describe the relevant elements of the system structure, the general scheme for execution analysis, and the current cost model for scheduling.
