Abstract : This technical report summarizes image understanding, image processing, and smart sensor research activities performed by the USC Image Processing Institute, The research program has, as its primary purpose, the development of techniques and systems for understanding images. Methodologies range from low level image processing principles, smart sensor CCD (Charge Coupled Devices) LSI circuit design, up to higher level symbolic representations and relational structure manipulations. Results reported herein include quantitative edge evaluation, texture analysis and synthesis, feature combinations for linking and line development as well as the formulation of a higher level software system to handle storage and relational structures. Results in the signal processing area include Poisson MAP restoration, blind complex OTF deconvolution, condition number calculation, and inverse SAR imaging. Smart Sensor design of new 7X7 circuitry is progressing and real time TV rate 3x3 CCD chips are now operational and available.
