Conference paper
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 2)


A pre-processor is described that can be combined with a conventional computer into a powerful instrument for experiments in the field of computer vision. It contains several micro-computers, all of which work in parallel and have access to the digitized video signal at the same time. Each micro-computer executes its own program analyzing the video signal with respect to one particular aspect.

Results of experiments involving the pre-processor are reported.
