Abstract : Advances in solid state technology have created vast amounts of digital information for image processing. It has become evident that conventional serial type processors are no longer sufficient to handle and manipulate these vast amounts of data for feature extraction and other image processing routines in general. The results of this report indicate that reductions in processing times of one to two orders of magnitude can be obtained for certain algorithms when implemented on special machine architectures.
