Paper Abstract

Integrating the modules of early vision, such as color, motion, texture, and stereo, is necessary to make a machine see. Parallel machines offer an Opportunity to realize existing modules in a near real-time system; this makes system, hence integration, issues crucial. Effective use of parallel machines requires analysis of control and communication patterns among modules. Integration combines the products of early vision modules into intermediate level structures to generate semantically meaningful aggregates. Successful integration requires identifying critical linkages among modules and between stages. "I he Connection Machinet is a fine-grained parallel machine, on which many early and middle vision algorit hms have been implemented. Schemes for integrating vision modules on fine-grained macliines are described. These techniques elucidate the critical information t hat must be communicated in early and middle vision to create a robust, integrated system.
