Paper Abstract

The watershed is a complex but very powerful morphological operation that is often used in image segmentation. It involves the iterative use of the skeleton by influence zones (SKIZ). In this paper a parallel algorithm for the determination of the SKIZ is presented. The proposed algorithm can be efficiently implemented on an optoelectronic array processor. The optoelectronic processor is constructed via multilevel, high-speed, fiber-optic programmable logic arrays.
