Abstract : This report describes ongoing work on the development of RADIUS, a real-time image understanding system which is well suited to VLSI. In addition to the development work, several related tasks are discussed including developing an interface between a PDP 11/34 and the RADIUS processor, investigating further applications of residue arithmetic to image understanding, and developing an integrated design automation capability that will allow us to design and simulate LSI and VLSI circuits. Future work will include further development of the RADIUS processor and the development of the local area logic processor. When they are both complete we will have an integrated pixel level processor that can perform a wide range of functions in real-time and many more functions in near real-time. An interface to the PDP 11 for the integrated RADIUS-LOGIC processor will also be developed, and this will allow all pixel operations to be performed at high speed, reducing greatly the CPU time needed for image understanding programs.
