Paper Abstract

The Hughes Imaging Laser Radar sensor gathers separate range and intensity data channels at 2 megabytes/s/channel. Commercially available SIMD parallel processors provide the horsepower to process this data in real time. In this paper we discuss a fairly generic hardware/software architecture to process this data using an APx-128 SIMD processor for each channel and a 386-based host that provides control of an image display and the recording of features. The expandability and affordability of this approach makes our design applicable to a wide variety of similar problems.
