Paper Abstract

A real-time parallel processor named PETAL is described which has been developed to extract cartoon primitives from grey-level television images. It is based on a cascaded look-up table architecture and is controlled by a 68000 microcomputer. It can process 256x256 images at 50 frames/s.
