In this paper, we present a set of heterogeneous algorithms for computer vision tasks using the Image Understanding Architecture [IUA]. The full-scale IUA developed jointly by Hughes Research Labs and University of Massachusetts at Amherst is a multiple level heterogeneous architecture. Each level is constructed to perform tasks most suitable to its mode of processing. The lowest level called CAAPP is an SIMD bit-serial mesh. The second level is an MIMD organization of numerically powerful

We propose a set of algorithms utilizing multiple lgvels of this organization, concurrently. The problems studied include Hough Transform-line detection, finding geometric properties of images, and high level image understanding tasks such as object matching. 286 0-8186-5420-l/93 $03.00 0 1993 IEEE
