Abstract : A novel Residue Arithmetic Digital Image Understanding System (RADIUS) is described. This represents an application of VLSI technology to real-time image understanding. Extensive use is made of high speed programmable look-up tables to perform a wide variety of functions on a sliding 5x5 kernel. Residue arithmetic techniques minimize look-up hardware and provide effectively concurrent arithmetic. An interface to the PDP UNIBUS has been developed. Preliminary results of a study to determine functional requirements of a complementary logic processor are presented. (Author)
