Paper Abstract

Because of the required speed in robot vision applications, it seems obvious to speed up some time consuming phases in the image processing with special hardware. The preprocessing stage is likely to be the most suitable for hardware implementation because here the amount of data to be processed is the largest and because the computations are not too complex. This paper will discuss a few hardware building blocks for image preprocessing that have proved to be very useful, such as the computation of the low order moments of objects in binary images, runlength encoding, projections and profiles, gradient operators for edge detection.
