Paper Abstract

The parallel processor embodied in the GAPP device was originally developed by Martin Marietta for military target recognition applications and is commercially available in integrated circuit form from NCR. The device represents the most powerful hardware technology available for extracting the size and shape information necessary to describe objects in an image. The focus of this paper is how to develop a system solution to an image understanding problem using GAPP devices. The paper discusses the basic system architecture issues, as well as hardware/software tradeoffs and development cycle considerations.
