Paper Abstract

A modular pipelined image processing system called Kiwivision has been developed for high-speed machine vision applications. The architecture of Kiwivision is discussed and a description given of the operating software. Results of timing comparisons between Kiwivision and three other image processing systems (a DEC LSI 11/23, a Motorola MC68000 microprocessor and a 256-element SIMD array) are presented. Finally, current developments aimed at improving the performance of Kiwivision are described. These involve interfacing the pipeline processor to an array of transputers to produce a hybrid architecture, the structure of which matches that of the machine vision algorithms.
