## Abstract

Fuzzy integrals as image filters generalize linear filters, morphological filters and order statistic filters. Fuzzy integral filters use fuzzy measures to model ambiguity about each pixel in its neighborhood to enhance an image. Fuzzy integral filters are computationally intensive. To achieve real-time filtering performance, parallel processing techniques is required. The SIMD mesh architecture is considered as a natural parallel architecture for image processing. Enhancing of the processing elements (PEs) of an SIMD mesh computer with comparators and counters to efficiently implement fuzzy integral filters are studied. For an n × n image on an n × n enhanced mesh computer, a fuzzy integral filter of size K with respect to a fuzzy measure that only depends on set cardinalities takes O(K) time, which is optimal.
