Recent practice in image processing is dominated by heuristic methods used to design practical, relevant algorithms. To ensure high efficiency in the design process, the communication between user and computer should be as direct as possible. An interactive software system for image processing is required to fulfill this demand. Interpreter-based systems with high interactivity available on the software market have the drawback of low operation speed. In AMBA/D we combine the performance of a compiler/based system, with the interactivity of an interpreter system. The AMBA/D system is an interactive programming environment with integrated facilities to create, compile, execute, and debug programs. In AMBA/D, a compiler language, direct execution, and programming concept is combined with a collection of high-level image processing procedures. The design of a special compiler language was necessary because existing computer languages like FORTRAN, C, etc., do not fulfill our requirement of interactivity. The system runs of an IBM-compatible personal computer and can be used with different types of commercially available frame grabbers.
