Paper Abstract

Computer assisted-vision plays a greater and greater part in our society, in various fields such as people and goods safety, industrial production, telecommunications, robotic... However, technical developments are still timid and slowed down by various factors linked to the sensors cost, to the systems lack of flexibility, to the difficulty of developing rapidly complex and robust applications, and to the lack of interaction among these systems themselves, or with their environment. This paper describes the ICAM(Intellignent CAMera) project, a smart camera with real-time video processing capabilities. This camera associates a sensor with massively parallel outputs and a SIMD processors network to achieve very high speed processing. The paper presents the first modelisation of this device and first results.
