Towards Cost-Effective and Versatile Real-Time Vision Based on a Distributed System of Personal Computers

Odemir Martinez Bruno and Luciano da Fontoura Costa

Workshop on Cybernetic Vision,202-207,1996

Reports the development of a cost-effective framework for the implementation of a versatile computer vision system, namely the Cyvis-1. Based on a strong biological motivation, the Cyvis-1 approach presents as underlying structure the multistage integration paradigm, which is inherently suitable for parallelization and representation through the OOP/GUI concepts. A model for the parallelization of this system is defined that incorporates multitasking, distributed processors, and message interchange through channels. The implementation of each of these parallel features in IBM-PC compatible machines running under Windows 95 is described and an application example is presented
