Paper Abstract

Vision information processing involves extracting, describing, and explaining information from images of 3D environments. It can be divided into three levels according to the technical complexity and used methods: low-level vision, middle-level vision, and high-level vision. Based on the characteristic and requirement of each level, we propose a low-level vision processing module on the basis of DSP, a middle level vision processing module-PIPE, and a high level vision processing module--parallel graph reduction machine (PGR). Working on the same platform--IBM PC/AT, these 3 modules compose a hybrid vision computer. It may be an efficient solution to process images with large volume of data and critical real-time requirement.
