Abstract : The goal of the ARPA Advanced Vision Systems program (AVIS) is to develop hardware accelerators that will provide dramatic improvements in performance for machine vision, image processing, automatic target recognition, and other applications with similar processing needs. During phase I of the program our group conducted a study of software issues raised by the AVIS program. The goal of our current effort is to develop an abstract lower level interface for real-time computer vision accelerators. This interface will allow applications or development environments to control, sequence and synchronize with computations running on multiple accelerators without reference to vendor- or device-specific functionality.
