“Image Understanding Research, Semiannual Technical Report”

by Ramakant Nevatia and Alexander A. Sawchuk

March 31, 1981

This technical report summarizes the image understanding and VLSI system research activities performed by the USC Image Processing Institute and the Hughes Research Laboratories during the period of 1 October 1980 through 31 March 1981 under contract number F33615-80-C-1080 with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Information Processing Techniques Office. This contract is monitored by the Air Force Wright Aeronautical Laboratories, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.

The purpose of this research program is to develop techniques and systems for understanding images, particularly for mapping applications. The research activity includes low level image analysis and feature extraction, statistical and structural texture analysis, symbolic image representations, and image to map correspondence using relational structures. Additional activity is concerned with VLSI architectures for implementation of image analysis and image understanding operations.
