Paper Abstract

Digital images contain a great many samples of light intensity distribution as recorded by a vision system. Processing times using software techniques can be relatively long due to the large number of samples, and real-time operation may be impossible. The paper considers the principles of edge detection and shows how they may be applied in a real-time system. It is shown that very large scale integrated circuits may be utilised to give efficient edge detection providing the camera system operates in a non-interlaced mode.
