by Ramakant Nevatia and Alexander A. Sawchuk

March 31, 1980

This technical report summarizes the image understanding, smart sensor and VLSI hardware research activities performed by the USC Image Processing Institute and the Hughes Research Laboratories during the period of 1 October 1979 through 31 March 1980 under contract number F-33615-76C-1203 with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Information Processing Techniques Office, and monitored by the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.

The research program has, as its primary purpose, the development of techniques and systems for understanding images. Methodologies range from low level image processing principles, smart sensor CCD LSI and VLSI circuit design, up to higher level symbolic representations and relational structure manipulations.
