Abstract : This technical report summarizes the image understanding and VLSI system research activities performed by the University of Southern California and the Hughes Research Laboratories during 1 April 1981 through 30 September 1981 under contract number F-33615-80-C-1080 with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Information Processing Techniques Office. The purpose of this research program is to develop techniques and systems for understanding images, particularly for mapping applications. The research activity includes low level image analysis and feature extraction, statistical and structural texture analysis, symbolic image representations, and image to map correspondence using relational structures. Additional activity is concerned with VLSI architectures for implementation of image analysis and image understanding operations.
