Computer vision applications are characterised by the need to provide a rapid response to information derived from a high-speed continuous data stream. For example, real-time computer vision using noninterlaced (60 Hz) raster-scanned image frames requires the completion of all processing tasks (including data input and output) within a frame-time of 16.7 msec, suggesting processing rates of 10-1000 GOPS (Giga Operations Per Second (e.g. iO 8-bit additions per second) and input data rates approaching 1 Gbytes/sec. It is the requirement for such high-performance, unattainable by sequential architectures, which can only be achieved with massively parallel processing.
