Paper Abstract

The gray level geographical structure (GLGS) is a simple method to represent the local intensity variation of an image in symbolic description. This representation can be used in higher level image processing in subsequent steps. The advent of VLSI microelectronic technology has led to the idea of implementing the GLGS directly in hardware. A two dimensional pipelined systolic pixel classification array is proposed in this paper. In the design, each pair of processing elements processes the data in a pipelined fashion and the data in each pair of processing elements is processed in a parallel fashion to further enhance the system performance.
