Paper Abstract

A new real-time image-processing architecture for an electro-optical tracking system was developed and evaluated. In this architecture, the universal interface called Pipelined Data Interface (PDI) was defined, and this interface connects the function modules. The authors fabricated the equipment as a demonstration system, including an input section, SPU (support unit), and an image processing section, IPU (image processing unit). In the IPU various modules are realized. These modules include spatial filters, moving target detector, window thresholder, binary filters, shrink point finder, boundary tracer, feature extractor, ID (identification) filters, etc.
