Abstract
Foveal sensors can substantially increase the performance of active vision systems because of their ability to handle wide field of view and simultaneously reducing the data/bandwidth with space variant sensing. In order to process the multiresolution images and associated data structures, a new hierarchical processing has been applied to minimize data communications and retrieval. In the paper we present a hardware platform implementing a level sequential segmentation algorithm in one of these hierarchical structures generated using a Cartesian lattice topology. This platform is designed to work at 33 frame/s using as an input the levels obtained after preprocessing the uniform resolution images from digital cameras.
