Fast image processing is a key element in achieving real-time image and video analysis. Here, a novel framework based on a spiral architecture is used to facilitate fast image processing, in particular, fast corner detection. Unlike a conventional image addressing scheme where the picture elements are indexed using two-dimensional Cartesian coordinates, a spiral addressing scheme enables the image to be stored and indexed as a one-dimensional vector. Image processing is hastened through the combined use of the one-dimensional structure and a lookup table. The performance is evaluated by the application of a corner detector based on the Harris corner detection algorithm. The results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach compared with a typical two-dimensional implementation.
