Paper Abstract

Cellular logic has been available to accomplish image processing since the early 1960s. With the rapid decline in the cost of digital circuitry, it is now practical to develop advanced systems employing cellular logic and other types of parallelism that are well suited to image and sensor array analysis. Three recent systems,CLIP4, DAP, angi MPP show use of these principles and can attain, respectively, rates of 109, 1010, and 1011 pixel operations per second. This paper describes: 1) the nature of cellular logic, 2) the relationship of cellular computers to the diverse digital devices available today, 3) the concerns in applying three-dimensional cellular logic to track detection and, 4) track detection experiments.
