Practical VLSI realization of morphological operations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Mathematical morphology has been proven to be a very useful tool for image processing and computer vision. Gray scale and binary morphological operations are usually implemented by software. Software implementation is, however, inefficient and slow. To achieve real-time morphological processing, a new hardware implementation method is presented based on VLSI. The complexity of the implementation method is also discussed.
