A Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) parallel computing platform built upon a network of TMS320C40/44s (C40/C44) for real-time image processing of a hierarchical foveal machine vision (HFMV) system is described in this paper. The architecture of the system, the parallel algorithm development environment, and strategies to map tasks into the computing platform are described. The platform supports both static and dynamic computing resource allocation. The performance of the computing platform is illustrated by examples.
