Experimental Environments for Computer Vision and Image Processing, World Scientific, 1994 (in series Machine Perception Artificial Intelligence, vol 11).
In this article, an object-oriented communication scheme based on persistent objects is presented. It will be demonstrated how such a mechanism can be incorporated into several existing image processing systems and what the advantages of the approach are. In this context, some general principles of object-oriented design and how they can be applied to so called computational networks will also be discussed.
Keywords: image processing, object-oriented, persistent object, communication, module network.
