Design of an Experimental Laboratory for Pattern Recognition and Signal Processing
An interactive computer-controlled scanning and display system has been in operation at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center for two years. The system includes two flying-spot scanners, specially interfaced to a process control digital computer, dot-mode and vector displays, analog input and output facilities, and a variety of other experimental equipment. The system design and programming support are described and typical applications in scanner control, optical character recognition and image processing are presented.
