Paper Abstract

A multispectral and low cost/performance ratio vision machine is here proposed. Integration and fusion of visual information are the main capabilities required to this architecture. Modulanty and system upgrading features are also taken in consideration in order develop a low cost/performance ratio vision machine. Two intimately linked hardware environments constitute the nodes ofthe proposed architecture: a VMEbus based subsystem is taylored for data acquisition, preprocessing, and general purpose number crunching, while an Apple MacIntosh is devoted to data and image display and to control the acquisition and processing procedure running on the VMEbus. Moreover the MacIntosh environment can be viewed as the software counterpart of the VMEbus for the modularity of its software packages. The system cost and performances are evaluated on the base of the market offering. The proposed architecture is taylored for the solution of a typical remote sensing problem: the terrain classification on the base of its thermal inertia.
