Paper Abstract

Machine Vision and Image Processing have been limited to slow software techniques for object definition, measurement and characterization. Such software is now available in a hardware module implementation. The hardware provides sixteen parameters for up to 255 parent or child blobs in 1/30th second, real-time. Among the parameters are Connectivity Analysis; Area and Centre of Area; Location, Elongation and Orientation; and Shape Discrimination. Target tracking is possible using these parameters. Hardware organization and configuration will be described briefly along with existing and potential applications.
