Paper Abstract

Enlarging the range of pictures amenable to automatic image analysis and speeding up image preprocessing were the motives leading to the construction of VAP. Its main features were derived from simulation studies on biological electron micrographs: flexibility in the choice of the transformations which must include nonlinear pixel operations, high speed execution, and an interactive environment for programming. The VAP hardware uses a tree-like structure with look-up tables to calculate a new value for a pixel from the input values of various selectable neighbour pixels. Several biomedical applications are discussed.
