Abstract : In a recent paper Lowry 81, we described an architecture for a computer vision rectangular processor array that is suitable for VLSI implementation. In this paper we will review that architecture and discuss extensions to it and present results of an array simulator applied to vision algorithms. We will also present an algorithm for re-routing an array with bad processors into a working subset of the array, making it feasible to implement a large array on one wafer-sized chip. (Author)
