Abstract In this paper a parallel computer architecture for real time image processing is described. The architecture centers on the direct mapping of a synchronous dataflow graph on hardware and software. Each node (or group of nodes) is replaced by a hardware or software module. The processing elements are interconnected by a flexible and fast communication network based on multiple interruptable buses. The prototype SYDAMA I (SYnchronous DAtaflow MAchine) has been built. On this system, many low level image processing algorithms run in real time at video rate. Applications of the system are real time computer vision, real time image enhancement, real time color seg- mentation, real time depth data processing, robotics, and autonomous vehicle guidance.
